Due time for DELPO to step-up and get that 4th spot soon, hopefully he meets Ferrer in the Quarters.

If he retired now, would he be remembered more for winning 11 slams, or for losing his last ever match to a qualifier at WImbledon :L

yes, but the fact is that Nadal's team's communication has never been transparent and readable since that all started, sometimes looked amateur as well with contradictory words from different sources, which easily allows for all kinds of rumours to spread.

Maybe they had no choice, I don't know, but I would prefer it differently.

Missing slams is not a way to prepare for your season.
Yup, exactly. Of course, he wouldn't be the favorite for the title, but so what... does he really have to be the favorite to enter a slam?

If he learnt to schedule properly we wouldn't be having these discussions.

It's his own fault.

yes, that fits what I thought and what my brother had said from Moya's words.

According to my brother, Moya had said that they only had practised on one half of the court playing down-the-line shots.

Seriously I don't get it. Why would the Nadull's invent a bizzare stomach virus storry insted of telling the truth?

While Nadal will be missed, the AO will still have plenty of stars. Federer, Djokovic and Murray are there (so far); Berdych and Del Potro will probably have a deep run.

Get well, Nadal, so that Fed can blame you for losing again.
It was never in doubt that Heya would find the esential stuff in Nadull's withdraw.

The way I understood it was that the virus was nothing significant by itself, but it's killed his prep time. Given he was already 50/50 on withdrawing for the AO, from the comments to Harman above, it would seem to be the final straw that made the decision for him.
