He doesn't move particularly good in this video. Maybe I'm reading out too much from a training session but it doesn't look promising from his point of view.

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Re: Rafael Nadal Injury/Health Update Thread : Nadal confirmed for Viña del Mar

I read one interview with top tennis coaches like 2-3 years a go and all of them said that Nadal body will not last long with his kind of so physical game type. Even Federer told that to him.

But we dont know what would be - only time will tell.

I wish Nadal all the best.

“Does Djokovic resemble myself?” Agassi said. “No, he is even better. He defends really well, while I struggled more in that element of the game. Novak looks totally relaxed when defending, completely calm and the quality of his return is incredible. He is also extremely flexible in his game, which is facilitated by his ability to anticipate his rival’s moves. That is why I think he is a much more versatile player than I was and he is also much more athletic.”

Photos and article about Nadal training in Mallorca today - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/ten...a-workout.html

Still has some pain and discomfort but his interviews today seem to have been along the lines of "I need to start sometime" and hope the knee responds well. Some photos:









The knee - looking bruised.



Video of practice today:

Weird - how come?

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”
