On the eve of Wimbledon, the multiple Wimbledon champion proclaimed: "I am able to move more freely now, I'm not scared about my knee."

“At last I am confident that I can play a lot of matches on grass. Before, I was not. It’s the best I have felt for two years.”


After winning the French Open for the ninth time, Nadal took the kind of rest his body so badly needed.

“I was able to go to the beach, party with friends,and do some extra work in the gym. It meant I could come to Wimbledon last Wednesday and prepare immediately.

“I have practised more than usual, and that’s been very positive because it showed I was OK physically.

“On grass you don’t get weeks of preparation, so you can’t always understand how you’re playing. But I feel things are good now."

^^ No chance injuries can caught him in warmups, slicing bread, or even flushing toilet .. :lol:

At least knee excuse is ended now, but don't expect from Nadal to accept defeat fair and square. I think he may be thinking he can win this year with Rogie in his draw.

Though he should feel his back and his tendons in many body parts, it seems.
Or he showed it many times this year, no need to look at his interviews, it was enough to watch those matches. :D

3rd straight 1st week exit?
Nadal is a great grass court player, people on this forum are retarded and seriously think that someone who has expelled as much energy as he usually does in the spring and at RG should magically be 100% for the next event on a different surface

we don't have the room for comparison (of Djokovic, Murray, etc.) but you can be sure if they won RG they would probably struggle to play well at Wimbledon too

beyond just the physical nature of it players who win big events can struggle to reset their brain mentally for the next huge event especially when it is only 2 weeks after, add to that the difficulty of adjusting to surface speeds and changing strategy = a very dangerous recipe

I love all of these naysayers who only play on one surface recreationally and pretend they have a clue how easy or difficult it is too adjust a players game

This is very good news. Let's hope all the top players are healthy and we get to see some great matches in the final rounds.

The news by OP and the link is not the same exactly.

Beaten in the first week for the last two years, Nadal has steadfastly refused to blame his physical well-being.

He says: “I am able to move more freely now. I’m not scared about my knee.

“At last I am confident that I can play a lot of matches on grass. Before, I was not. It’s the best I have felt for two years.”

After winning the French Open for the ninth time, Nadal took the kind of rest his body so badly needed.

“I was able to go to the beach, party with friends,and do some extra work in the gym. It meant I could come to Wimbledon last Wednesday and prepare immediately.

“I have practised more than usual, and that’s been very positive because it showed I was OK physically.

“On grass you don’t get weeks of preparation, so you can’t always understand how you’re playing. But I feel things are good now.’Nadal, who opens against Martin Klizan of Slovakia, added: “Everybody remembers the winner, and the victories. Nobody remembers the loses."
He can answer as much as he is asked. Sometimes does not make much sense. But it was alright this time.
