Smile Nadal set to be fit for Wimbledon!

Vamos Rafa!

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/tennis/5090036.stm

World number two Rafael Nadal says he has overcome the shoulder injury which forced him out of the Stella Artois Championships and is fit for Wimbledon.
Nadal withdrew from his Queen's Club quarter-final against Lleyton Hewitt.

"I pulled out as a precaution after I started to feel some pain, but now I have overcome the problem," Nadal told Spanish newspaper AS.

"All I am thinking about now is playing at Wimbledon again. I have a week left to prepare myself well."

Nadal will play Finland's Jarkko Nieminen and Australian Mark Philippoussis in two exhibition singles matches at this week's Marsh Classic at the Hurlingham Club in London.

But the French Open champion does not believe he is ready yet to go on and add to his Grand Slam total at Wimbledon.

"I need to take it one game at a time. My only objective is to improve my play on a surface I find difficult, and I don't expect to go far," Nadal added.

"In the short term I am focusing on having a good tournament, working hard to prepare myself to be able to win there in the future.

"I don't think I will leave as champion this year but we will see what happens."

Vamos!

Hope he improves on last years results, so in a couple of years he can put the Fedtards and their hero down for good.
