Nadal still having foot problems?


CAPTION: Spaniards Carlos Moya (L) and Rafael Nadal (R) appear after thier friendly match 23 December 2005 in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. It was Nadal's first venture on court since his foot injury in the Madrid Masters Final a month ago. They played nine games, but Nadal reportedly still felt he was having foot problems. AFP PHOTO

Re: Nadal still having foot problems?

Yes, apparently. Our commentator (Javier Frana, ex tennis player) said during a match that he had talked to Carlos Costa and apparently Rafa's injury wasn't improving and they were starting to get quite worried because of that because they didn't really think it'd be that serious.

That's all I can remember him saying...

Re: Nadal still having foot problems?

What is actually wrong with the foot? Is it a different problem from that originally diagnosed?

Re: Nadal still having foot problems?

In the interview before this match he said that his foot was much better now and that he's in a final stage of his treatment.He also said that he's off form because he started serious trainings a few days ago. He added that he's pretty sure he'll be fit for AO.

Re: Nadal still having foot problems?

The last minute information on his injury is that the pain in his foot practically has disappeared , but he wants to wait some tough practises to see how his foot responds before confirming officially that he's utterly recovered .

Although the new about his withdrawal in Chennai is officially today , it was a known new since the before week, because he wants to take a lot of precautions before returning to competition and besides his physical condition is poor because of his " short " off-season because of the injury . In fact he will arrive to Melbourne in a worse form/fit than the rest of players so it would be a surprise that he won the first Grand Slam of season .

These days he's practising with Moyà in Mallorca.

Moya loves to chew Rafa's feet while banging him

Obviously, "the rest of the players" sent Galaxystorm detailed reports about their off season preparation.

I think (at least, it seemed to me) that Galaxystorm simply meant that Rafa won't be at 100%, whereas considering the AO is so early in the season, one would reasonably expect that most players are at their best - at least in terms of freshness, physical condition, and stuff. Of course, many of the top players were hurt at the end of the year, so there are questions for all of them. As far as I've heard, Andy and Lleyton are fine and preparing for the season, same for Roger but I haven't heard much about his ankle, Safin may not play, and if he does, who knows what his form is.... and same with Agassi. So the season will start with many questions about many of the players' fitness, I suppose.

Re: Nadal still having foot problems?

Hi Deb! Marat won't play Hopman Cup, said he's not ready yet. I hope he'll be fine & fir for the AO. I don't expect him to defend his title if he won't have any matchplay before AO. I so hope Rafa's injuries are gonna be healed well for the AO and it's just precautionary.
