Wimbledon withdrawl and injury discussion

Looking ahead now. I hear he's got some tests in Barcelona Monday and Tuesday before he'll make his Wimbledon decision.

I expect him to be there unless his injury is totally crippling. How he'll do is another story entirely.

Time for the grass season

We'll have to see how it goes. I'm not too upset about dropping out of Queens. Borg never played any tournaments before Wimbledon. It's too bad he's losing the points though. He'll need to do very well at Wimbledon this year.

Re: Bouncing back for Wimbledon

I think he does have a small knee problem however that's mainly because of the number of matches he has played so far. Not playing queens would be a big boon for him physically at the same time the queens crowds cheers would do him a lot of wonder.

I don't think he will miss Wimbledon , that's just mind games by his Uncle.

Why shouldn't it be opened? Do you think it will jinx his appearance there?

Re: Bouncing back for Wimbledon

I'll just throw it out there that my name's Pat, I kinda just randomly started posting on MTF and in here a while back without any introduction.

I'm hoping to see Rafa at Wimby and while I wont make a firm MIT prediction just yet, I'd be really pleased if he could get through his opening three matches without trouble (no Kendrick/Soderling of the past, please) and then hopefully make the semis. I don't expect him to defend his title, not at all but it would be oh so sweet if he were to beat Fed for in London for a second time to even up their Wimby head-to-head.

Vamos Rafa

Hi Pat.

Jonathan, I hope you're right that it is the next tournament he's going to play.

Re: Bouncing back for Wimbledon

I can't see him missing this event, Melanie.

If he does, then the usual Rafagirl worrying will actually be deserved.

Re: Bouncing back for Wimbledon

So is this the official Wimbledon thread now or is it not? If it is, you've got my admiration for daring to start it without the approval of the chat thread

Re: Bouncing back for Wimbledon

I wish Nadal full recovery and good recuperation, and that he's fit and raring to go at Wimbledon. All the best Nadal. I sorely missed him in the RG final.
