But if he really can't play then that's all there is to it. I wish him luck with his recovery, and there's nothing much else to talk about. Just leave him alone until he comes back.
that you would even consider it possibly being 'fear' is silly. after you've won as much as he had, you think he would not play just because of being scared that he might do badly?
he's not naive, he doesn't want to play with zero practice. I can't say 100% that it's the stomach virus or something else, but I think it's safe to assume that he THINKS that he'll be back on tour in the next month or so.
if it is indeed the stomach thing or anything, it makes sense. how can you play Doha with no match practice? what would the point be. I do agree with some comments that it's totally strange that he would already retire from the Australian Open, you'd think maybe he could practice hard and see if he is feeling good in the next week or two, but we all know how anal Nadal is about the schedule, hell even how water bottles are sitting besides his chair during matches...

I don't like all of this lame accusations though, obviously it's not a 'game' for him to fake out the public. he certainly wouldn't look good if he had an on going knee injury he was trying to hide, but why again would he still hide it? it's not unheard of that players get the bad luck of having an injury and then an illness.

I just hope he gets better. I was certain he would play Doha and now the future is pretty uncertain I do know that it benefits Nadal nothing at all to make up the problems he's having and that some of you truly must be haters to claim that he is just throwing the public around. whether it's a stomach virus or a knee problem what does it matter? he can't play near maximum level by the grand slam so he won't play. not like it's a conspiracy
and dude the Australian Open is one of the hottest tournaments of the years and 5 set matches! if he was opting out of playing Roland Garros I might think it was a serious injury he was trying to hide BUT does anyone here really think he would be able to play well in Australia with no practice time in the past week or two?

wish there was just a more positive attitude around here, I mean Nadal's out and doesn't want to be, rather then accuse him of being a faker or hiding things why don't we just wish that he gets better

Nadal the great sportsmen that he is, as we all know has never lost a match when healthy. Every defeat he has suffered was due to him being at death's door. I guess he was just closer to death against Rosol than against Soderling.

I'm not sure whats worse Nadal for conjuring up all his bullshit excuses and injuries or the imbecile fans that buy into the lies he continually spews.

Re: Nadal OUT of the Australian Open

Wasn't surprising.. saw this coming from months ago... however, this stomach virus thing I'm not sure what's up with that...? I understand it may be affecting him now but is really that the excuse for withdrawing out of the Australian Open?

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

Re: Nadal OUT of the Australian Open

I don't like his idea of I won't compete if I can't win the trophy thing. I am sure other people have played without 100% fit.

Because of his fierce competitiveness, I always thought he can make deep into any tournament without him 100% fit. I think his biggest fear is losing to lower rank players/ crash out early. There is something not right with Nadal.

I vote for option 3: the worst is the pathetic message board loser who feels a compulsion to spit all over a great player who is coming back from injury and who acts like he knows what is going on in the head and body of people he has never met.


People like you make message boards the petty places they so often are.

Re: Nadal OUT of the Australian Open

Evidence just continues to mount that Nadal may well have a career ending injury ( or at the very least career limiting).

Re: Nadal OUT of the Australian Open

I'm starting to fear Nadal is never coming back, not really. Not as he was.

It's a very valid fear at this point, and not a lot of the BS around here. The longer this goes on the more likely it is.

Oh well, on to a bright new career as an underwear model. Luckily, he'll be able to attract the same fans.
