Seeing as Rafa is not playing in Beijing, we will have to wait until Stockholm to see him again Hopefully by that time, Tio Toni will have whipped his ass into shape, and he'll win Stockholm, beating defending champ and Rafakilla: James Blake. (Although James is a sweetie )
"Rafa will be unable to defend his title at the China Open in Beijing next week. Rafa was due to play the tournament, which begins on Monday, but unfortunately he suffered an injury during the US Open which will prevent him from competing. In his fourth round match against Jiri Novak in New York, Rafa twisted his right ankle a little and despite being able to play his quarter final, Rafa has decided it is best to rest the injury and see if he will be fit to play for Spain in the Davis Cup."
