Nadal unsure on Wimbledon fitness

Nadal had treatment on his shoulder during the second set
World number two Rafael Nadal faces a battle to be fit for Wimbledon after pulling out of his Queen's Club semi-final with a shoulder injury.

The French Open champion was level at one-set all against Lleyton Hewitt when he pulled out, and he will now head home to Mallorca to recuperate.

Asked if he thought he would be fit for Wimbledon, the 20-year-old replied: "I don't know, I hope so."

He added: "I felt a lot of pain here. It would have been stupid to continue."

What a shame that would be as he was so determined to do well on grass this year.

The article doesn't really say much, so the title of this thread is a bit misleading.

It would be a great shame if he had to pull out. After what he showed in Queen's I must say I am impressed with his progress on the surface.

With the Wimbledon courts not playing as fast as they used to in the past one would be foolish to discount him as a contender for the title. I really hope he is fit and ready to go as I would love to see how far he can take it there.

yes the title is misleading. those quotes are right after the match, not from follow up medical check etc..

The title is misleading, yes. I'm fairly certain that Nadal will play Wimbledon, it's very important to him. He might end up retiring in the first round, but he'll play.

There's a short piece in today's El Pais, where Toni says Rafa should be OK in time for Wimbledon. However, so far there's no detailed report as to what kind of injury it is.

Nadal will play Wimbledon. The article doesn't at all hint that he is doubtful, just that he is unsure of his situation right now.

Once the match starts if one player retires is considered as a loss by retirement , that is a loss .

Well the article says he is unsure whether he'll be fit for Wimbledon. That means as of now, there are doubts whether he'll be fit for Wimbledon. Nothing misleading about the title of the thread.There is no difference between being unsure and being doubtful...

The only question is if he will get a 2 seed knowing he might be having these little injuries.I would still give him the second seed with Roddick at number 3 and Nalbandian number 4.Those are my top 4 seeds.

Though you were two months jumping without stopping as your smilie is doing Roddick won't be nº2 seeded player since Nadal is gonna play at Wimbly. :retard:

I think it's pretty mean to post a message in this thread being happy for Nadal's injury .

This isn't the right place, and you have showed not much respect.

Keep being happy for players injuries, that simply shows your good manners and your fair play :wavey:
