These delays might be just what doctor ordered for Rafa's injury

Having some extra time to let it heal properly is just nice.

Yes and then having to play matches without the rest days in between is just brilliant isn't it? Not putting an injury under strain at all...

He's not injured and the rain delays will mean nothing to him after all.

Goodness we can't have people trying to see any possible positives in the situation!

Rafa is being VICTIMISED. Do you understand? VICTIMISED

Bimes hates him, FFT hates him, France hates him, the world hates him except for his loyal band of Rafatards and Lord Carlos. Even Federer hates him in Paris, though across the channel he loves him in London.

Weep for the future. Weep for Rafa.

The muscle strain he got in Hamburg was still bothering him for a bit (nothing really serious) when entering Paris. That's why he also asked for a later start.

If he was injured coming into RG, obviously the best thing that could happen to him would be to have to play a match every day with no rest like in Wimbledon last year.

Brilliant logic.

The rain delays could well have an adverse affect.

Nadal's got a cakewalk draw in the first 3-4 rounds, where the delays might prove adverse. Then he'll have a good rest.

When you have the level of tennis understanding that I do, 2 games is more than enough :shrug:

Is there a particular reason why they don't put the "to-be-completed" matches first on the schedule of play and rather start with a new match? it makes no sense to me
fingers crossed Nadal can complete his match later today...

also, will further rain delays affect players who have played on the first day and say, have their next match like four five days later....will they feel like they lost the momentum? or treat it like a first round match?

My faith is all in Mathieu. Knowing what a headcase he is, that's probably even more desperate. But I'm dying to see the sideshow - French crowd vs Djokovic family.

What injury? Muscle soreness is not an injury, if there was an injury Nadal would not be practicing. :shrug:

now comeon man stop making excuses for your beloved one. if he was injured, he wouldn't have run there for 3 sets. even eng commentators mentioned that rafa looks ashamed now after taking the timeout as he isnt doing his regular fist pumping (or whatever u call), bcz he is running alright (and all of a sudden winning).

it was more of a strain from going down 1-5, nothingelse.:shrug:

Unfortunately, choking proportions of PHM gives us no hope that he will even come to the point that he could play to Faker.
This Faker last RG went through the semis without beating anyone inside top50.
This year is even worse. He plays in the 2nd round some 200+ guy!!!
What a lucky ass

1. Where in here does Karin say that a muscle strain is an injury?
2. Did you miss the "nothing really serious" bit in that post?

***

Claiming this to be an injury would be false, that's true, but I don't quite understand why some posters insist in saying that a player is physically 100% and perfectly fine unless they have to carry him off court with the ambulance at the ready?

He didn't have a real injury - that's true - but he did have a muscle strain which was not really something serious but it still required some rest: he could not train for a couple of days and he had to start slow, gradually building it up. That's also the reason why Nadal was said to have asked to not start on a Sunday.
(note: this is not typed out of a request to ask for sympathy for poor little Rafito but it's a matter of fact: he had a muscle strain which needed to rest in between Hamburg and RG. He indicated that he's physically fine now, so case closed as far as I am concerned).

Well said, Hilde. :yeah:

Looks like we have a new full-blown delusional Fedtard on the board, in classical fashion claiming that anyone who posts in favour of Raf (or just points out the truth) is a Rafatard... :haha:

love the way, a rafa fan changes the meaning of a word in defense of his beloved one.
anyhow whether strain muscle is an injury or not isn't a major issue here and neither does it changes the fact that its still an excuse.
