What's goin on with Rafa?

He withdrew from the Bangkok to rest his knees another couple of weeks. Nowadays he is training in Madrid Arena, at the venue of Mutua Madrilena Masters. I hope he is 100% healthy, but I don’t believe he’s 100% match fit and have no ideat what to expect from him. It’s difficult to play a tournament like this without the best conditions, no?
With regard to the rest of the spaniard armada David Ferrer looks on fire, both Feliciano Lopez and Tommy Robredo look in a good shape, Carlos Moya can be a little tired.
What do you think about Rafa and his fellows?

Rest up Spartan, and keep resting. Rest until 2009.

There's a Nadal forum, mug. Go there and ask whatever you want.

Better than being 37 and coming up with comebacks like that.

Re: What's goin on with Rafa?

Nothing's up with Rafa. No one thought he'd play Bangkok. In fact he was talking about his next tournament being Madrid almost immediately after the US Open. But they didn't officially announce his withdrawal until the last minute. Probably so they could keep selling tickets on the notion that he'd be there. But skipping Bangkok and starting again at Madrid was the plan all along.

He's saying that his knees aren't bothering him. He's not match fit, no, but he had to stop training completely for over two weeks to give his knees a break. He'll probably make it to the quarterfinals or so, and I'd be pleased with that result.

2008 RG and Wimbledon would be a good place to beat up on the Ego King.
