Re: rafa nadals parents

This is almost definitely the reason not only for Nadal's loss in RG, but also in Madrid.


His knees trembled greatly at the thought of potential divorce, maybe.

No, seriously chenx, you are absolutely right. This simply must be the main reason for why Nadal lost. This will probably crush him and his threat at future slams will be severely diminished. Shame.

I heard rumours that he had heard rumours about the divorce during the Hewitt match and was quite happy about it, hence his good performance. Then against Soderling the adrenalin rush of it all just wore off and he got bitch slapped.

Re: rafa nadals parents

I am unsure as to whether Nadal will be able to really pick himself back up after hearing of this news, I guess Wimbledon will tell us. As for his knees, well they just further compound this problem. If there is one man who can show the mental resilience though to come through this strong, it has to be Rafa.

losing aside, is there any truth to it?

Re: rafa nadals parents

I seem to remember lMac (a severe Nadalite) saying that his parents are getting divorced, she tends to be quite the authority on Nadal's life. It is probably true then... for real.

Re: rafa nadals parents

Seriously now, this is probably true. And it might affect the guy, he's a family lad.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

True but why all this after successive losses.

Because it is the real reason for his losses (though the knees were a contributing factor).

Also I would be interested to know the reasons for divorce, because if Nadal's knees are the reason and he knows that, then he will be feeling a great amount of guilt.

He should get rid of the knees altogether. Clearly they cause nothing but trouble.

His knees offend me, to put it bluntly.

Mono is the reason. Poor Nadal lost before Roddick did.

Roddick is a better clay court player.
