Q: Why did the squirrel cross the road?

A: To end Robby Ginepri's tennis season. And because he was stapled to the chicken.

The American tennis player will miss the remainder of the ATP season after suffering a broken elbow caused by a rogue squirrel.

According to ATP, Ginepri was riding his bike near his hometown of Kenisaw, Ga., when a squirrel darted across his path. He swerved to avoid it, but fell off his bike in the process and tumbled 50 yards down the trail. The 113th-ranked player in the world suffered a broken elbow and required surgery.

The 28-year-old will be in a cast for six weeks, but hopes to return for the 2011 season. We wish him the best and offer this piece of unsolicited advice: When somebody asks why you needed surgery, just reply "tennis elbow."
