Re: Will Rafa withdraw from Halle?

Yeah, he'll withdraw. It would make no sense to play because he'll be tired, and the field is actually pretty strong which would make it even tougher. He should get rest for Wimby.

Re: Will Rafa withdraw from Halle?

Even though the FO F will be done tomorrow or Tuesday at the worst, and although Rafa has a first round bye as the #1 seed at Halle, and he wouldn't have his first match (2nd round) until Wednesday or Thursday, I don't think there's enough time for him to get Halle and acclimated to the grass, so I say he withdraws from Halle.

If not, he will tank his first/second match.

Re: Will Rafa withdraw from Halle?

Knowing Nadal, he might just come by for 2 matches. That's enough ball-hitting with pros till before Wimbledon.

Uhm, last year he was tired too and still played, I think he will play.

No, he's saving for a new yacht, so he needs every penny he can get .

Re: Will Rafa withdraw from Halle?

The weather on Monday will make a difference. If this match does finish on Monday (especially if he wins), Rafa plays and gets his two matches in. If it finishes on Tuesday, he withdraws.

Andy Murray: 2012 Olympic gold and silver medalist. US Open Champ. Wimbledon champ. Never been prouder of him.

Re: Will Rafa withdraw from Halle?

He knew he would probably won RG.
So... Why did he agreed to participate here?

I think he should probably play, if he's tired, he can tank when he think he should.
But so many people want to see him.

i don't know...

Re: Will Rafa withdraw from Halle?

Rafa's first match would be on Thursday so there's still time for him to come to Halle.

I think though that it is likely that he is going to withdraw from the doubles tournament.

He can always play an exho with Hewwit to make up for any loss of match practice.
