Metis, DS = draw something.
I can't imagine how my name could have come up there.
Jm, has rafa played even one match since you started this thread? If not, this may be the most epic jinxing effort in recent history.
It is all your fault.
Not good news, that's for sure star.
Dr Gonzalez: "He will have to rest for at least 3 months."
The reporter first asks the doctor what the difference is between tendinitis and tendinosis. Tendinitis basically means tendon inflammation and happens to young people; but when a tendon has been subjected to a lot of forces you don't get an inflammation but degeneration of the tendon (and that's what Rafa has now). It is serious for the progression of the player. In the case of Nadal, he's been having this type of problem for a long time. He is being treated by the best specialists in the country but logically the only alternative he has is to rest, rest, rest. The doctor thinks that he must get complete rest from the sport for a minimum of 3 months and then he can see a possible improvement.
At the level of Nadal, getting cured from this lesion is a very difficult proposition. He suffers from chronic pain, tendon degeneration; the goal is to make this tendon degeneration less painful and not let it prevent him from competing professionally. Curing it completely is impossible because additionally the tendon creates problems and pains in the whole knee joint.
They are hoping he will recover to is previous level. He will have to play less though.
(didn't get everything towards the end)
Yes, but we're renting now... We just bought something now
Ah I see. Congrats! So is it poshy and fantastic as Maria says?
Okay, we need to post more. Oh, know what I heard yesterday? My niece, who'll be 4 in December, already learned how to ride a bike without the training wheels
Having 2 brothers competing in BMX tournaments must have been an incentive.
