Unhappy Nadal won't be in Basel

I just read the news on www.sf.tv that Nadal won't be at the atp swiss indoors in Basel as first sheduled.
Reason: His form is not all right.
It's a pity he won't come.
Do you think it'll help him, if he stays out of a tournament to overcome his problems?

Tennis, best sport ever

Re: Nadal won't be in Basel

That is a shame - he needs to play through his problems. Too much time off since July. Seems to be a similar trait for many of my favorites this year.

...

His form seems fine to me. Even though he lost against Berdych, he was playing much better than he did in the previous tournaments.

He probably has other reasons but he has every right to keep them for himself.


I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.

Stop bashing Nadal, that is just absolutely pathetic.

Re: Nadal won't be in Basel

So is he injured? Or just prefers to save his energy for Paris? He's not been playing a lot so I can't imagine he's too tired.

Re: Nadal won't be in Basel

come on. Give the guy a break. He wants to win and he's trying to figure out a way to do it. If that means adjusting he way he plays, then he needs time to work out the kinks. He isn't content to lose in the quarters of tourneys. Let's see what he looks like going into Paris. Maybe uncle toni is going to work on flattening out his strokes for hardcourts/faster surfaces.

Re: Nadal won't be in Basel

Actually, isn't he's working on adjusting his serve or something to win more cheap points off it? so maybe they're focusing on that before Paris.

I think what he's tired of is losing before he even makes the finals. I suspect he's trying to adjust his game again based on this latest batch of disappointing losses.

Re: Nadal won't be in Basel

If anything surprised me about Basel it's that he entered the tournament at all. No reason for him to play three weeks in a row, especially at this point in the season. It's different for Roger, it's his home tournament. It's an analogous situation to what Rafa faced with MC, Barcelona and Rome.

I'm allergic to morons.
