According to the official site of the tournament, Nalby won't play against Nadal on Friday due to an acute inflammation in the right hip that has forced to him to retire. At least that was what I understood from the Spanish version. Anyone to confirm?
Yes. Unfortunately, that's exactly what it says...
His coach has already mentioned the hip problem 2 weeks ago. Look on page 218 of the David News & Articles thread. He says it will affect him for most of the year.
Lobo said that it has been affecting him for the past eight months.
