Confirmed: Nadal No Bangkok

http://uk.reuters.com/article/tennis...13553520070923

BANGKOK, Sept 23 (Reuters) - World number two Rafael Nadal of Spain has pulled out of this week's Thailand Open because of a knee injury, organisers said on Sunday. The three-times grand slam winner is at home in Mallorca receiving treated for tendonitis in his left knee, which plagued him during the recent U.S. Open, where he reached the fourth round.

Oh that's just too bad. But he better not come back until he's feeling better and ready.

Actually that's good news there would be nothing worse than for him to come back on a hard court with a lingering injury.

Re: Confirmed: Nadal No Bangkok

Nadal had no intention of playing, he had pulled out a while ago, but the tourney director played a game until the last possible minute with the Thai fans.

I fully agree. However sad the fact that he is injured, it is most important that he now takes the time to fully heal before coming back on the HCs. The upcoming TMS Madrid is way more important than this tournament, and hopefully he'll be fully fit for that one. Get well soon, Raf!

Re: Confirmed: Nadal No Bangkok

But still....a potential Djokovic vs Roddick final is on the cards. Some great tennis still to come for the Thai fans. Anyway, Nadal isnt at his best on the hard courts.

Expected not to say the least. The best thing at the moment for Rafa would be rest, rest, and more rest. He needs to focus on Madrid, Paris (if anyone decides to show up), and Shanghai.
