It is not really a shoulder injury. It was in his neck and it reverberated in his shoulder, arm and hand. He had tingling in his fingers. It is like a pinch nerve in his neck so I am not overly worried because with treatment, it will go away, well, I hope.

Bodo says Nadal should stop talking about his injuries, it gives his opponents an edge and the constant attention to his knees sucks his energy. I'm inclinded to agree. And the more I think about it, the more Andy's preparation for Cilic and not talking about his knee status was a sly move, especially when he didn't show up to practice. Cilic, like the rest of us, was left guessing whether Andy's knee would hold up or not. Then when the shoulder got injured Cilic was left wondering whether Andy would retire or not, and then later he couldn't figure out why Andy suddenly started playing better. Andy had Cilic confuzzled, what a shame Andy let Marin off the hook in the fifth set.


Nadal should have downplayed injury in loss
Keeping opponents guessing is preferable to highlighting struggles

On the men's side, I was disappointed for Andy Roddick, who lost to Marin Cilic. It's funny, I understand why so many people still are left cold by Roddick. He's a huge star, from a rich nation where that status yields enormous rewards. He's won only one major, yet he has a way of attracting attention. He walks with a swagger, enjoys life, has a wide irreverent streak, says what he thinks, and he does nothing to cull anyone's favor. But he gets beat up and knocked out, time and again, only to jump up off the mat, jaw thrust forward, inviting the next Nadal, Federer, del Potro, Murray or, now, Cilic, to take his best shot.

Roddick may not deliver the best shot in tennis, but he sure takes a "best shot" better than anyone, and that's curiously at odds with his persona. I'd like to see him join Justine as a Wimbledon winner. One lousy stinkin' Wimbledon title. It would go a long way -- all the way -- toward making it all have been worth it. Not that it wasn't, as is, but. . . you know what I mean.

The results have shown."
