Re: Rafael Nadal Injury/Health Update Thread : Nadal out of Abu Dhabi exho

I just have one interesting thing to tell you. My brother was having problem with his knee & running and was seeing physiotherapist specialist for this kind of problems in Belgrade . And she told him that she was in some seminar of physiotherapist held in Seoul, South Korea and that she spoke with Nadal physio and that she asked him what will happen with him for 10 years . Nadal's physio told her that his knees are in bad condition, but they request from him to make him fit to play no matter what is the price.

I think that his knees are not yet ready and they dont want to risk it on AO or other hard court tournaments.

Quite right. It almost never rains during summer in England, after all. I'm sure you can testify to that

So what was the prognosis in ten years time? Chronic pain? Limp?

I know but I thought he'd keep up the pretense for a while at least. Instead he's being as blatant as can be.

I'm actually quite impressed at how not bothered he is.

Well, it's his business - if he says it's virus, then virus it is; still one has to wonder what's the point of all that.

Re: Rafael Nadal Injury/Health Update Thread : Nadal out of Abu Dhabi exho

I'm not sure if someone posted this here before, but it wasn't the stomach virus directly that led to Rafa's withdrawal from the AO. What he said was that the virus caused him to lose valuable training time, so that he couldn't reach the level of physical fitness needed to meet the demands of a grand slam.

http://www.australianopen.com/en_AU/...705033061.html

I guess he decided there was no point in entering if there was a very good likelihood of another early exit.

Yes, but how MUCH training time?

I'm sure that we are all familiar with stomach viruses. I suffered one of the most debilitating stomach viruses ever imaginable last year and in 12 hours, I felt fine. My condition was so bad that I literally could not stand up for more than 3 or 4 seconds. The pain in my abdomen and lower back was absolutely unbearable and I almost had to go to the emergency room. But suddenly, I had to vomit....and then I felt 80% better, and my condition improved dramatically over the next few hours. Then I experienced a much milder case last month.

These things don't last long. But for him to suggest that he has been crippled to the point of being ill-prepared 2-weeks ahead of time is ludicrous....especially since we see him already on court (a clay one). At most, he may have missed 2 or 3 days of training...and that's not even enough of a disruption to cause him to pull out 2 weeks in advance. There isn't enough training in the world that would substitute for an actual tour-level match (after his 6 month layoff) so this virus certainly didn't stifle any notable success.

Of course, I'm just speculating. I simply believe that it's just an excuse in order to delay his return and make it on clay, rather than a hard court.

Re: Rafael Nadal Injury/Health Update Thread : Nadal out of Abu Dhabi exho

^Your virus one was an individual case, Nadal's virus could've been worse and longer.

Besides, how energetic did you feel in the week following your bug? You may have not felt queasy but it usually takes a number of days, or even weeks, to reach full strength again.
