He especially emphasized his disappointment at "not being able to be there for the morning before the match with the thousand kids who participate in the mini-tennis event. I think that the organization has take a great initiative with this act of promoting the kids and I would really have liked to be with them, since when I was a little boy myself I also liked to see my idols."
Nadal also explained that "I have to listen to my doctor. It's true, the injury is not really serious, but the most prudent thing is not to force it now since I am in the final part of my recuperation."
