Re: Toni's comments on Rafa's withdrawal
Yes, he had the press conference today to say he has the Hoffa's Syndrome, a painful symptom to do with the fat padding in the back of the knee.
Rafa says he will play when he is ready to play, and may alter his schedule in 2013 and beyond, finally. Hopefully more clay and less hard courts. And less doubles on hard. Toni is targeting Davis Cup in September, perhaps the Asian swing, but not much later after that.
I predict latest, he'll be back for Paris Indoors.
