I think Rafa injured his knee yesterday.

The match last night I didn't want to stay up and watch, because it was late, it was a predictable outcome, and I didn't give a fuck. I saw it anyway, Rafa played pretty decently. But in the third set, I think Rafa injured his knee/knees on a point where he lost his footing and slipped and put a lot of pressure on his knees, then was forced to hit a tough passing shot on the run. After that point, I saw him with that sort of worried expression on his face, and also doing those pained facial expression he does. At the change of ends, he looked at his box and said something, again looking a little upset about something. I don't know if it's just paranoia, and he's been made to run much less through this event than years previous, but he didn't look right to me there, it didn't feel right.

Did anyone see what I'm talking about?

I also so that.

I also recall when whoever it was interviewed him after the match (Pam Shriver?) and she said: "You look good, you don't have any pain in the knees, you seem healthy" and when she mentioned the knees, he sort of gave a look like: "You have no idea but I've got to keep it under wraps."

They just have to hold out for 3 more matches.

If there is a problem with his knee, we'll all be the last to know. He'll do what he needs to do to be ready. His foot is wrapped up something awful and he's still winning so no worries from this fan. No sense getting MTF fans all bent out of shape if we know nothing for sure, no?

Let me quote myself - his foot is wrapped something awful and he is still winning........

My point being that his will to win overcomes most little aches and pains which is what this probably is....if anything at all.

I'll ask the same question I asked you months ago.

When is the last time Nadal lost while he was healthy on clay? Of course, you have twisted it into me saying he always is hurt when he loses, but that wasn't what I said. I mean, you act like that is a ridiculous statement, but it isn't. When he's on clay, and 100%, he wins, all the time.

Filo V.
09-08-2010, 11:04 PM
Most of you are very disrespectful and pretty much being jackasses, I asked a simple question, and only a handful of you actually answered, and a large part of the rest of you had some smart alecky thing to say like you think it's cute for an adult to act like an asshole and be rude. If you saw him wince, show a bit of pain and give a little bit of a worried look to his box, then say yes, if not, say no. Not a fucking hard question. If you aren't going to answer the question and instead try to be disrespectful towards me, don't enter the fucking thread.

Hurt by whose definition? He has taken clay losses where he wouldn't admit to being banged up, but his fans said he was.

You do realize there's a Nadal forum and you can analyze every wince, breath or fart he makes there? It doesn't come with the benefit of ready made excuses for GM, but it's the place to discuss your "fears".

He's been healthy (not injured) but fatigued a few times.

But it is really irrelevant anyway. Fatigue, injuries, etc.....is is all part of the game. If the match was played fairly and he lost, he just lost.

When is the last time Roger lost when he was 100%? Well, I guess that depends on who you ask and what you mean by 100%. It is really irrevelant anyway. A loss is a loss.

I watched the match and i must say that his play was good, but not particularly great. He was serving really well, and i assume it would have been apparent if his knees are hurting.

He however was tight and was not his usual exubarent self and that had a lot to do with the fact that he was playing a close friend, spaniard etc more than anything.

In anycase Rafael Nadal does not need an excuse not to win the US Open. It has been said ad nauseum on this forum how terrible he is on hard courts. For his Fans, I would imagine the best they want to see is him giving his best account of himself. If it yields a trophy they should celebrate, and if it does not they should take comfort in the massive improvements and adjustments that he is making in his game and his quest to to his best. Noone can be shamed for giving 100%!

He's clearly just been laboring the entire US Open. Just having a brutal time. Can't remember Rafa in worse condition.

But like a true warrior he is, he fights back the pain to eek out these victories.

The drama in his matches has been intense. I'm keeping a close eye on his knees.....and his "wittle baby toe".

It's amazing that Nadal is able to recover from his knee problems so quickly when James Blake has the same problems yet had to take 10 months off, and he still says he feels pain and can only play at about 80%. Meanwhile Nadal is out there hitting the ball harder than he ever has and still running around like the Energizer bunny chasing down shots that would be clear winners against anyone else. What a true warrior this guy is.
