Rafa is injured.. He wants to watch Spain in World cup and matches are played when Europe is sleeping.. He doesn't have points to defend since his outstanding performance last year... Djokovic and Murray will want to win very bad while Rafa seems not to care about Wimbledon after winning 2..

Do you think Rafa will still play Wimbledon?

He will but I doubt he will be full on committed or disappointed when he loses.
His serve has deteriorated and on grass it shows the most.
Generally his level has dropped a lot and only on clay he can overcome it.
I mean grass is not even worth it anymore - 3-4 weeks, dodgy surface, people try not to fall more than try to play tennis, servebots - you can't just receive 5 m behind to start a rally.
Good thing is the grass season is short as are the matches themselves. The most ugliest part of the season. People falling all the time and getting injured, one-two shot points - total travesty.

Rafa should not be skipping Wimbledon. If he does, he just forfeits the number 1 position in the world. That's not the face of a champion despite winning 9 RGs. He needs to fight, if that's what the world wants to see in him.

How can yo hate Wimbledon? It has become so random though lately.. Not enough time between Roland Garros and Wimbledon dont let players prepare well..

I gust saw several people falling and getting injured it is only the first week of the grass season. Last year W was a disaster with regard to injuries and retirements. Add to this the endless unreturned serves, waiting for number of games just to see one decent rally.
Add the non-stop interruption for rain. No, thank you.

Since when have you been watching tennis? Wimbledon has always been like this, fast paced and British weather...:confused:

Wimby is ok but grass as a surface is sub par.
Tennis is fluky and dominated by servebots with no skill needed.

If us Brits were not so traditionalists - Wimby would have turned to clay long back - it just makes sense.

Wrong. Rafa cannot bend down properly on the grass. This has been apparent to anyone since 2012.

But it may force him to skip some non-tennis activities.

On a serious note, I was surprised he played Halle, it sends a signal that he is determined to play and do well at Wimbledon. Also I wouldn't be so disappointed with yesterday's defeat if I were a Rafa fan, he was rusty and tired but still produced some nice tennis.

MTF level has gone to a historic all time low. Rafa is going to skip Wimbledon to watch Spain? Jeez what an absolute joke of a post, most of the matches aren't even when Europe are sleeping anyway ffs.
