Nadal withdraws from Davis Cup

http://www.lequipe.fr/Tennis/breves2...l-renonce.html

He says he has a knee pain since Miami (against A-Rod), he felt it against in Monte-Carlo and at Wimbledon again.
As he wants to win the US Open, he wants to rest his right knee. He had some pain in the previous round too.
He says he didn't want to talk about it at Miami because he didn't want to make some excuses
He rested up his left knee between MC and Rome, it worked, but didn't have some time for his right one.

Re: Nadal withdraws from Davis Cup

Just read that, apparently he said that if he played DC He'd never make it to the USO

The French suck ATM but they have a chance to go through now.

If clay and grass are causing problems he can forget winning on hard courts and possibly needs to consider missing the hard court season as it physically is very hard on the knee.

Re: Nadal withdraws from Davis Cup

Wow, he is a winner in any case.

If he wins Wimbledon he is a superman, a Spartan, if he loses it is because of his knees, his arms, the umpire not letting uncle phoney coaching him..............

If I am fit I can't lose a match, no?

He said that he had treatment on his left knee between MC and Rome and it worked really well because he hasn't felt any pain in that knee since then but now, it's his right knee that's bothering him (since the previous match) and they didn't have time between MC and Rome to treat both knees. I figure that they hoped it would hold until they had time to treat both knees.

How the hell can you have time to treat one knee but not the other?

As far as I know, you dont have to wait until one "injury" heals before healing the same "injury" on the other side of your body.

the thing is though, in severe cases of chronic tendonitis, no treatments whatsoever will do better than a long rest which would allow the knees to heal properly. although a 6 months break or so is probably out of question for Rafa, he might well end up be forced ton consider such an option.
