Good for him if it boosts his YEC chances. He probably wouldn't have done much in Paris anyways, and the YEC courts are a bit slower, so he'll have a better chance there with some extra rest. Of course all this depends on the injury not actually being serious.

Wasnt Rafa booed here when he retired in a match?. Also the 2009 French open soderling match with parisians jeering him.

Parisians don't likr him - its fitting they dont get to see him. Fans in Tokyo and Bangkok made no secrets about wanting him in their countries. London crowd loves him - think he will be there with another new weapon. Rest up Rafa ;)

Very weird decision, I thought playing well in London was a big deal for him, but now he will go in there rusty after 5-6 weeks off. If it was a conscious scheduling decision to play a lot in Asia and skip the indoor season, it's pretty unorthodoxed. But I think he probably got sick or something....

Rafa should not care about playing in this tournament, not after the way the Paris crowd has always treated him, bunch of classless twits, he's won 3 grand slams this year, the season is way too long.

Anyways, Rafa should just rest up for the World Tour Finals in London, and I hope he unleashes hell on everyone there.

Manequin75
11-05-2010, 08:54 PM
looks like he has tendonitis in his left shoulder. That sucks. Could be because of his new faster serve? The improved serve was meant to protect his Knees. I guess now he needs to come up with something to protect his shoulder too. This guy has tendonitis in too many places. Sucks.

only if he is fine. Looks like he has a medical issue with tendonitis in his left shoulder. It doesn't look like strategic - he spoke about playing in his practice videos, recent interviews on spanish tv and also on his facebook. He even flew to Paris. Now obviosuly with this issue his serve will be impacted or he will take it easy in london.

I hope he recovers fully for the AO 2011. Thats the big one.

Yea I guess, he just went to paris to make more believable that something is wrong. I Definately hope so because shoulder injury/tendonitis is worse than knee tendonitis could well be the beginning of the end for rafa it it were true.More treatment for shoulder as well as knee could be too much, he already had two blood treatment for the year. I believe "blood-spinning" so more treatments of this kind will add to his resistance untill they increase dosage or his body rejects it. I hope as a fan of tennis its not true.:sad:

"I am very unhappy to not be playing this year at the Paris-Bercy event," said the five-time French Open winner, who has had less success on the other side of Paris, where his best result was reaching the final in 2007.

"Due to a small tendinitis on my left arm caused by forcing a bit too much on my practice this week back at home I have to stay 6/7 days resting.

"It is nothing to be worried about, but the doctor told me that during those days I have to be doing intensive treatment and functional rehabilitation with physiotherapy."

I don't think so nadull always had alot of action(range of motion) on his forehand to generate so-much spin,also his left hand is not his DOMINANT hand (less stronger),so it baffled many why he didn't have any shoulder issue till now ,I think the added strain of the "new serve" just excerbated an old issue & sped-up the deteroiating process.
You don't get tendonitis in 2/3 months, you get it from prolonged usage.

11-06-2010, 01:01 AM
Well to be fair his serving technique isn't really up there with the best and he has clearly added some oomph to his serve, so this may bother the shoulder.

Knotty Fort
11-06-2010, 01:04 AM
If it's really tendinitis in his left shoulder, I'm not surprised. It seems that his new service motion is more about using a new grip, which means he is generating that extra oomph through pure rotation of the arm, rather than using his body weight more efficiently. This is quite obvious when we see his new service motion, where you only see the increased movement around the shoulder area, rather than an extra "leaning" into the serve. Looks like they may need to further develop a more ergonomic service motion again.

Rest up, Rafa! At 1st, I didn't approve of him playing the Asian swing so shortly after the USO but now I've come to respect him more for it. Fans in that part of the world don't get to see the top player that often. I'm glad Rafa was able to thrill them. Who knows how many little boys and girls will pick up a racket just b/c of his presence there.
The season #1 ranking was sealed a long time ago, there's no need to overplay now. He'll have more opportunities to play Paris in years to come. Just play the Masters Cup and call it a very successful year. Go Rafa!

The wont have to hear piggy squel and groan as he chases the ball down all over the court whilst getting outplayed, relying on stamina over his non exsiatent tennis ability.

He wont pull out of London though. God this Nadla caln pisses me off. Toni ordering Nadal around with his ''we have deciseded to pull out etc) they are like a bunch of robots, so cheeky the lot of them :rolleyes:

I bet he was...even with all his moonballs, cheating and vamos vamos he still hasn't got what it takes to beat Murray on hardcourt....how sad he decides to not play a masters (a mandatory event).....little coward, grow a pair and man up, sissy girl.

I'm sorry but I didn't realize having a 4-4 HC record against Murray meant he cant beat him on hard court. And total massacres on clay and grass

I don't believe that Rafa would withdraw without a very good reason. Will be interesting to see if he shows up for London.

Anyway, the complete focus for Rafa should be on staying healthy for the Australian Open, where a win will cement his position in tennis with a historical non-calendar year Grand Slam.

You do realise that your hero and Nadal are close friends off the court. I wonder what Murray would think of all of your hatred directed at Nadal. My guess is that he wouldn't be impressed. Just something for you to think about.

Smart move by Nadal, he's finally figuring out how to manage his schedule to best suit his body. Good luck at the WTF champ.

If the reason is true then he will show up for London, because he said its "not serious" and requires 7-8 days rest. I just think he wants to win London so it'd be a mistake to waste energy in Paris in front of a crowd who Uncle Toni calls the worst on tour.

Paris and Masters Cup a joke to the Nadaltards because he just can't win there, NID :rolleyes:

Why don't you stop with those silly posts? Rafa couldn't win USO for a long time either and still we never thought it was a joke tournament, same with some other tournaments he hasn't won yet. In Bercy he at least made it to the finals, one time but still, unlike some other top players.

Shame. Paris continues to be the forgotten stepchild of MS tourneys. Expect Djokovic to do well with Nadal out, Federer with his usual post-Basel hangover and Murray still trying to put it all together.

Nadal wants the World tour Finals title this year, and he will prepare it seriously by avoiding Paris.

Sad it's for an injury but it's a clever decision, actually if I were in his shoes I wouldn't play in London either, afterall he's his #1 ranking asured for a long time, so why wasting effort and time there when he can start his holidays and be complete healed now :yeah:

rafa is gunning for the tour finals. no doubt about it in my mind.
he was utterly humiliated last year, and he usually wins the tournament the year following a humiliating loss the previous year.

examples
2008 AO vs tsonga. then wins 2009 AO.
2009 USO vs del potro. then wins 2010 USO.

Certainly it will be hard for him to do well in WTF without any indoor match played.It`s not like a normal tournament where u can play 2-3 bad players to get some match rhythm.If he is not sharp from start he will loose first match and then he will be under pressure to get through from the group

Nah, I've seen players playing indoor for the first time in a year, and they've played a high standard. So I don't agree. Rafa can turn up to London, do everything he did at the US Open and of course things will be different, but he'll have no problem advancing to the SFs with that form.

Rafa said its not serious and that it needs 7-8 days rest, I wouldn't worry. In all honesty, I don't think he has a shoulder problem, I just think he's had enough tennis since the US Open (Thailand, Tokyo, Shanghai) and he doesn't want to overdo it before WTF, and Paris is the event Uncle Toni says has the worst crowds, so no problem skipping it. A month ago when I saw he was playing Thailand, Tokyo, Shanghai, I said he'd skip Paris if he wanted to have enough left in the tank to win the WTF. He's very wise this year.

This. Pity RG is in Paris, I have a feeling Nadal doesn't like it that much even though he's so dominant on clay.

Circumstantial evidence support that theory.
