Press Release to Rafa Nadal
Subject: Suspension of Soul Exhibition Nadal
I want to apologize to everyone, especially to fans who bought tickets to help us in this cause so good, but regrettably we can not play the exhibition ALMA NADAL in Madrid in the Bernabeu on 14 July.
Doctors have been looking at my knee and I suffer from tendinitis in the patellar tendon. I have 15 days to be at rest, which makes it impossible to play with Novak Djokovic as we planned and announced.
On Monday I started with the medical and recovery treatment in order to arrive in good condition at the Olympics in London and return to represent Spain.
My first thought is for fans who already bought tickets, but also my thanks and apologies to Novak Djokovic selflessly coming from this event, as well as the Real Madrid Foundation who worked very hard with the team of my foundation for everything out well.
We will try to find a new date for this show later.
Now combine my recovery with a mini-vacation and will return to training within 15 days.
Again, thank you all.
This is no surprise, he has had knee tendinitis for years. It doesn't go away. He might have aggravated it again when playing football with his friends when watching the euro cup finals. We don't really know, and probably never will. He obviously wants nothing to distract or bother him from playing in the Olympics. Wish him good health and recovery!
A LA FINAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL!!!
