And stalling beyond the maximum seconds between points means he broke the rule every single time.

But I agree, when it comes to Nadal, the officials chose never to impose the rule.
Nole does the same thing by taking his sweet time wit bouncing the ball alot of times but no one mentions it at all, its all nadal.

The thing that worries me is that near the end of the video he bends over and grabs his knee.
That doesn't look too promising...

Djokovic improved (that is took less time) over the years, Nadal didn't.

Lamento mucho no poder competir este año en Abu Dhabi. Todo estaba preparado y tengo muchas ganas de volver a la competición pero los médicos me han prohibido competir en Abu Dhabi por una infección estomacal que me ha producido fiebre.

En Abu Dhabi siempre me han tratado muy bien y esta es la primera vez que no puedo competir en ese torneo. Mi recuperación ha ido bien, mis rodillas se encuentran mejor y como digo tenía muchas ganas de volver a la competición. Lo siento por mis fans en los Emiratos y en todo el mundo. Espero poder estar allí el año que viene.

I am very disappointed that I will not be able to compete this year in Abu Dhabi. I was really excited about returning to play and I always have a wonderful experience at the event and this is the first time I will miss the tournament.

My rehab has gone well, my knee feels good and I was looking forward to competing. Unfortunately doctors have informed me that my body needs to rest in order to fight this stomach virus. I would like to say sorry to all my fans in the United Arab Emirates and around the world, but I hope to play and win in Abu Dhabi again next year.
I regret much not to compete this year in Abu Dhabi. Everything was prepared and I am eager to return to competition but doctors have forbidden me to compete in Abu Dhabi for a stomach infection that has produced me fever.

In Abu Dhabi always have treated me very well and this is the first time that I can not compete in that tournament. My recovery has gone well, my knees are better, and as I was eager to return to competition. I'm sorry for my fans in the Emirates and throughout the world. I hope to be there the coming year.

Re: Rafa OUT of Abu Dhabi

Was really hoping to see Rafa play again this year. Shame... I hope he is ready to play in Melbourne.

Re: Rafa OUT of Abu Dhabi

Stomach virus causing fever? Well, that's at least something else. Shouldn't have an impact long term.

Re: Rafa OUT of Abu Dhabi

But what if it's a cover up and the knee is still not fully healed?
