I think Rafa injured his knee yesterday.

The match last night I didn't want to stay up and watch, because it was late, it was a predictable outcome, and I didn't give a fuck. I saw it anyway, Rafa played pretty decently. But in the third set, I think Rafa injured his knee/knees on a point where he lost his footing and slipped and put a lot of pressure on his knees, then was forced to hit a tough passing shot on the run. After that point, I saw him with that sort of worried expression on his face, and also doing those pained facial expression he does. At the change of ends, he looked at his box and said something, again looking a little upset about something. I don't know if it's just paranoia, and he's been made to run much less through this event than years previous, but he didn't look right to me there, it didn't feel right.

Did anyone see what I'm talking about?

Re: I think Rafa injured his knee yesterday.

There's a difference between hurting & injuring. If not even Uncle Toni has bothered to mention it, it must be nothing.

Re: I think Rafa injured his knee yesterday.

if it makes you feel any better I saw it too and had exactly the same thought - I said "oh oh" - but then he seemed to be fine so .. I hope it was nothing!
