seriously, Marca is not a tabloid
and Rafa's PR
team is just silly ... so much controversial information. it's turning out to be a major joke IMO. Nadal lost all of my respect.
knees might be fine or not, or maybe ... either play or don't ... as simple as that.
a) Marca is not a tabloid? Have you read it? It's hardly investigative journalism. It's a sports daily and Nadal's PR
and Nadal himself BOTH denied the story when it was published. The fact that you blame Nadal for a Spanish tabloid story is your problem, not his.
b) As for Nadal losing your respect - I'm sure he's devastated.
He said all along he was hoped to play but he hadn't decided. He was taking each match and each tournament at a time. The guy didn't play for 7 months! Not odd to wait for his body's response to all the matches he's played.
