Re: Toni's comments on Rafa's withdrawal

nobody to give news about Nadal's press conference ?

from what I read on French websites, he revealed that his knee problem would be a "Hoffa's syndrome", else called "fat pad impingement" :

it seems that it's a small injury but very painful which can be treated by rest and anti-inflammatories but it's not sure it works. If it doesn't work, a surgery can take the fad pad off but Nadal wants to avoid that.

useless old guy
