Default Nadal will skip IW and Miami UPDATE - confirms will play IW

I don't like it and I really don't know what to think about this any more. Too many guys here have seen it coming. Rafa can't just play on clay and run away from HC for God's sake. I'm not questioning his knees, I simply don't understand what's happening with him.

This is confirmed right now? Or still speculation?

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

"according to Spanish sports daily Marca"

Alex this is not the first time it happens to you but those had already been posted in another thread :

http://www.menstennisforums.com/show...235625&page=16

so far, it's only an article from Marca which Scoobs and JustlikeHeaven mentioned this morning, and since then Toni has denied that they had taken a decision.

It seems likely but nothing confirmed yet.

Default Re: Nadal will skip IW and Miami

Still only speculation at the moment ... absolutely no official word from the Nadal camp and no quotes in the article in Marca today. Surprised ESPN have made that statement since it isn't based in fact (not yet anyway).

There's no smoke without fire though ... so whoever wrote the piece in Marca may have heard a whisper or they just thought it would be good fun to 'speculate'.

ESPN put this:
Quote:
Rafael Nadal has opted to miss the first Masters 1000 events of the season in Indian Wells and Miami as his troubles with a persistent knee injury continue.
The 11-time grand slam champion, who plays the third tournament of his comeback after seven months on the sidelines in Acapulco this week, has decided to play only on clay courts between now and the French Open in May, according to Spanish sports daily Marca.
Based on this item in the Spanish version of Marca (they quote NO source).
Quote:
Nadal sólo pisará la tierra.
Su último torneo en rápida fue hace un año en Cayo Vizcaíno • Debuta en Acapulco
Joan Solsona. Barcelona 26/02/13 - 12:49.

Después de las dos primeras semanas de competición, donde alcanzó la final de Viña del Mar y el título en Sao Paulo, Rafael Nadal estaba satisfecho de su tenis pero no de cómo le estaba respondiendo la rodilla. "La rodilla me sigue molestando", reconocía. En base a ese dolor, y después de un periodo de reflexión en la isla de Cozumel, el tenista ha decidido que no jugará los dos primeros Masters 1.000 de Indian Wells y Miami.

Tbh, given the situation, it would make zero sense for him to play there, what can he gain? IW and Miami are the end of spring HC season which he skipped anyway, so why not going straight to MC?

the tone of the article in Marca doesn't look like speculation : the journalist is very affirmative.

But yes there's no quote, no official confirmation from Nadal's camp of any kind, so far only a denial from Toni.

if only just one more top 9 could forfeit too, that would be perfect.
