Rafa withdraw

I just read on swiss teletext that Rafa isn't playing
due to an injury.

Get well soon Rafa.

Re: Rafa withdraw

I didn't have doubt that it would be his decision. He needs to rest, and Basel wouldn't help him in ranking or his playing. It's better if he plays Paris and Shangai.

Re: Rafa withdraw

It is good to leave champion to other players, Fed and Nadal should not get all titles for themselves. No exciting if champion has been reserved to only two players.

Yes Tangy, specially that he doesn't need the points for Shanghai.

Re: Rafa withdraw

C'mon ...we all know what the real reason is!

Do you really think Roger is seriously injured? Watch him winning Paris next week!

Well, would you play if you knew you would finish the year no.1?

There are so many other 'fake' injuries becuase you cannot just cancel your participation just like that? Nadal injured for Vienna but then fully fit to play and win a major tournamnent like Mardid only to withdraw this week? Do you think if Madrid was before Vienna he would withdraw???

I don't mind what they do honestly but i have their number for a long time now!
