Re: Nadal OUT of the Australian Open

It does seem very odd to pull out so early. One of the fittest players you will ever see, but he can't handle five sets because he won't have played any warm-up matches? And he's got over two weeks to train between now and the AO, but he definitely can't make it because he's got a stomach bug? It does seem an odd and premature decision unless there's more to it than meets the eye. He's not even ill now, he says in his statement that he couldn't practice last week because of it. You would think he'd be dying to get back on the courts, he claims his knee is absolutely fine, but won't go to the AO because it's a 5 set tournament? This seems rather unlikely.
