Re: Rafael Nadal Injury/Health Update Thread : Spanish Press: Nadal not in DC etc

This is really great for tennis and the world at large. A sight for sore eyes, seeing him practicing, and seeming to be in good shape.

He exploded well into a couple forehands in that vid, and the serve was looking solid too. Very smart to keep him off the court until he was 100%.

Like he said, this break will extend his career, and I hope it does.

Now a video can only show so much. The real question is how will he hold up under a long match, and will his timing be in place or will be revert to a defensive game until he gets his timing right, probably around Monte Carlo?

I predict maybe R16/QF for AO, and he will come around by the clay season, take RG, and have chances at Wimbledon and USO.
