"Toni Nadal yesterday spoke to @esportsib3tv and of the things said, this for me is very important
Toni Nadal: "in 2009 the doctor already told us that what Rafa needed was to make a long stop, a total regeneration in the knees... .. .and start again. It wasn't done because there were no circumstances to stop. There wasn't a suitable time... ... now, on the other hand, there is no more remedy than to do it", Toni Nadal said"

Also there will be a press conference at 12 noon tomorrow in Manacor.

Hopefully to only say he is ok, recovering, and will return to tour soon. Hopefully not to announce retirement.

Default Toni Nadal: Rafa's career is not in danger

http://www.vavel.com/es/tenis/atp/18...%E2%80%9D.html

Quote:
Toni Nadal: "Rafa's career is not in danger"

By ADRIAN PEINADO | 16/08/2012 | Translated by nou.amic for http://www.VamosBrigade.com

Never has a press release caused such an uproar as the one issued yesterday by Rafael Nadal Parera, the best Spanish tennis player in history. "I'm very sad to have to announce I'm still not ready to play and have to pull out of the US Open," he wrote on the social networks. Then the storm broke... and the doubts began. The Mallorcan has been sidelined by the problems he has in the patellar tendon of his left knee since he lost to the then No.100 Czech Lukas Rosol in the second round at Wimbledon. An injury which is as well known as it is painful, as he has had it since 2006. So painful that it forced him to withdraw from the London Olympic Games, where he would have been Spain's flag bearer, and the Masters 1000 in Toronto and Cincinnati and so gloomy that some have dared to suggest his prompt inevitable retiral at the age of 26. That conjecture is a pessimistic one made from a distance. Close up, just a few metres away from the tennis player, it all looks different. There is hope.

"Rafael's career is not in danger," was the prognosis Toni Nadal, the world number three's uncle and trainer, gave on 'El Larguero' (CadenaSER) last night. "Indeed this extended stoppage is good so he can prolong it (the recovery period) as much as possible. We have been using stop gap measures for the past two months so he could continue playing, but the doctor has advised us that it is best for him to recover well. We have already missed the Olympics and now the US Open, we're in no hurry to come back. We have to be patient so we can return in the best of conditions to play well. It could be at the Davis Cup (semi-final tie against the United States in Gijón starting 14 September) or a little bit later. But I hope it won't be much later," he went on.

Toni, like Angel Ruiz Cotorro, the RFET doctor and the player's personal doctor, believes the only viable solution is rest, not an operation, which would prolong his return for up to six months. During the past weeks they have continued with the growth factor treatment of the damaged tendons. But they are not achieving the expected results. Now, as a result of the accumulated effort made over the whole claycourt season, the inflammation (tendinitis) in his patellar joints has caused degeneration of the tendon fibre (tendinosis), thus increasing the period necessary for recovery. In other words, he has chronic pain that demands a minimum of three months' rest and if not treated with absolute rest could develop into patellar chondropathy, an even greater problem.

"The treatment we're going to follow is conservative. It's the most prudent and it's what Rafael wants. He is in good spirits because he knows it's the only way he can compete without pain. This week he has been able to practise with intensity, but he ended each practice in pain and we knew it would be difficult to play the next tournaments like that. We've really thought it through and it's best for him to recover completely," explained Toni, who made light of the possible effects on his ranking. Nadal has withdrawn from four tournaments on the calendar reducing his points tally by 1380 (including the Flushing Meadow final) which would cede his number three place to Britain's Andy Murray.

But all of this matters little. There are other goals. In the short term, he hopes to recover in time to be fit to play well in the final "rush" of the season with the Masters Cup as his main goal. It will be played on indoor cement, in conditions that rub both his knees and his game up the wrong way. But Nadal will only come back when he believes he can be victorious. Not before that. He knows that any relapse could be terrible... and that there will be new opportunities opening up for him in the future. "He is determined to play in the next Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016," Toni announced. Believe him. From now on, there is only one option: playing it safe.
Seems they are optimistic he will return once more.

only to give a clear message I think, because at the moment there are contradictory words everywhere and typically communicators like Benito don't like that

(even if the previous info was wrong, I read elsewhere that Benito didn't like some alarmist rumours and that the doctor contributed to spread them)

Not going to happen. Even if he recovers in time for WTF, he hasn't been competing since Wimbledon; it's going to take him just as long to get back on track. Players (even elite players) can't return after months of absence and be ready to compete at the top level. This isn't WTA tour.

Thanks for the article which is very informative, and the news of the press conference, but why do you always need to create a new thread rather than keep on an existing thread (here Ash86's one was about Toni's words on Rafa's withdrawal, that is exactly the same topic) ?

Besides, you add this stupid poll as if MTFers knew better than Toni

I'm sorry, I thought people were interested in news about Nadal's injury and when he will come back.

My mistake

You should put the option "he'll come make and win 6 or more slams" just in case.

I wonder if surgery is an option for Nadal at this point.Sure,it would mean a long layoff but long term thinking it could be the best decision.
