Rafa Nadal could be back on a tennis court in about a month after intense physiotherapy and laser treatment on his troublesome knee, Spanish tennis federation (RFET) doctor Angel Ruiz-Cotorro said on Wednesday.

The world number three has not played since losing to Czech Lukas Rosol in the second round at Wimbledon in June and has been suffering from a partial tear of the patella tendon and an inflammation of the Hoffa's fat pad in his left knee.

The 26-year-old former world number one, who was unable to defend his Olympic title in London and had to withdraw from the US Open, said on Monday he would be out for another two months.

"We have completely ruled out surgery," Ruiz-Cotorro said at a news conference in Barcelona. "During the next month we'll be doing training with a lot of physiotherapy combined with hydrotherapy and laser and we'll see how he progresses," he added.

"We believe that within two months the tendon will be in what we consider a normal state. "In a month's time, if the tests and his progress are positive, he can get back to work on the court. "But that's not the main goal, that is for the tendon to recover with the same strength it had."

Ruiz-Cotorro said Nadal's injury would not necessarily plague him for the rest of his career and he was aware of similar cases where the tendon had completely healed. "It won't necessarily drag on, this injury," he said.

"He wants to play when he can do so in perfect condition and not just for one tournament but to have continuity. "When they tell you you can't play such important tournaments you are never pleased but now he is keen to recover and return as soon as possible."

Wrong. Vino Del Mar would be the cleverest thing to do. Don't play Miami, Barcelona, Canada, Paris either.

Re: Toni's comments on Rafa's withdrawal

nadal is hopeless at the Year End Tournament, this is much is clear. he's looking at 0-3 if he turns up

australian open is a weird slam for nadal. the bounce, the speed, it looks like it would be his best after the french, but it's not

can't seem him winning it again tbh. however, he must play the south american clay swing and stop with the pointless doubles at indian wells and miami if he wants to remain healthy and consistent

it's between djokovic and murray at the AO. it's murray's time to step up and challenge djokovic at his best slam

Re: Toni's comments on Rafa's withdrawal

Don't know if anyone saw these comments, but apparently Toni said this today:

"Rafa #Nadal has pulled out wisdom teeth. It generated an infection due to which the recovery treatment of the knee was delayed"

"The complicated thing is to play the last tournaments of the year going from 0 to 100. We'll arrive in Melbourne w/ 2 months of practice."

From @RafaelNadalFC


No idea what to make of them O_o

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo
