Re: Nadal: out for a month... at least

Maybe Nadal should rest until clay-court season and concentrate mainly this year to win another Roland Garros. Clay is better for his knees than hardcourts

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

Get well soon Rafa.

bugger the ranking, get the health fixed please. That's the foundation, the ranking can then be recovered.

He was intending to play Rotterdam? Jesusroflonastick.

He should accept his ranking is going to plummet, skip Barcelona and Madrid, and focus entirely on Roland Garros.

Well, it's not the same problem as before, right? That's good news. Dropping to 5 will suck, but at least it's not a long term problem.

Re: Nadal: out for a month... at least

Rafa playing style is: THISSS ISS SPARTAAAA, going after every single point like an animal.

Then his knees pop out. Federer is lol-ing every time this happens, sweet vengence for taking 3-5 slams away from him. (He should be around 20 now if Rafa was never born)

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Re: Nadal: out for a month... at least

Rafa should skip a lot of HC tournaments and play SA and European clay court tournaments to get points back, give his knees some rest and frankly I hope he tells Krajicek to bugger off

Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer

Re: Nadal: out for a month... at least

he has to decide whats more important his ranking or his health and logevity(sp?) if he forces himself to play on for the sake of his ranking thats going to make alot of problems worse if he steps back and rests for the appropriate amount of time sure he will lose alot of ranking points but it will let him regain his full fitness and he has the skills to reclaim his position.
i cant really see him sitting out until the clay season but its probably whats better for him, but then what happens when HC season rolls around again? is he just meant to not play HC tournys?

[Nadal][Zeballos][Wawrinka][Tsonga][Lopez]

Re: Nadal: out for a month... at least

He could play Hamburg instead of Dubai for example, avoid tournaments like Rotterdam all together, he can also avoid to play either Shanghai or Paris and he shouldn't force himself to win every single tournament in HC like he did in 2008/early 2009

Re: Nadal: out for a month... at least

torn quadriceps tendon? hmmm. thats not good, well in a way it could be. IT is a serious injury that need long recovery. ont he other hand it is not a long term problem.
He should now take the opportunity to think over his whole approach. let the ranking fall. recover. find form on clay, get RG back then fight for Wimbledon.

That would sound like a reasonbale plan to me.

He should not care for the ranking anymore he was at no.1, no he must focus on clay and RG, Wimbledon.

Agreed, sooner or later, he's going to have to start listening to the message his body is telling him - that means more clay court tournaments but not in such a condensed period. He really should seriously consider the SA clay swing next year and some clay post-Wimbledon too.
