After being sidelined with injuries for nearly six years, Brian Baker was finally back on the tennis court with a second chance at a professional career.
Playing in his first Australian Open at the age of 27, Baker had just won the first set in his second-round match against fellow American Sam Querrey, the 20th seed, when his body gave out on him again.
With the score level at 1-1 in the second set, he crumpled to the court after hitting a shot and shouted in pain, grasping his right knee.
