Poor conditioning. People who get injured so often don't take enough care of their bodies. Enough said.
Some players get injured for hitting with wrong techniques. Like not using the torso with the shoulder causes shoulder injury and so on.

This is a legitimate question. It has to be one of three things (or some combination of them):
1) He isn't training enough or isn't training the right way.
2) He's just extremely unlucky to have a fragile sort of body.
3) Every player has some aches and pains, but he just doesn't deal with his pain well.

If it's primarily #1 and/or #3, he just needs to make some changes to his training/mentality. If it's #2, maybe he should think about doing something else, but he can't go around withdrawing/retiring every other event.

just weak genes, physique. not all players are born with the perfect genetics that makes them strong. he has fantastic technique and is very quick but not particularly strong so if he steps in the wrong spot or gets worn down a lot there can be bad repercussions. although, I will mention that Nishikori gets 'injured' so often it becomes difficult to tell when and if he really has something serious. it seems every other tournament he is claiming something is wrong.

might be the case, might not, but if it is true then his bones are like glass

Not to sound racist, but Asian physiques are not built for durability like this, when was the last time you saw an Asian competitor in a running event at the Olympics? It is just something that is in his genes, his maximum aerobic capacity is lower than other players.

I don't think so. Table tennis doesn't have so much running but it is as much dynamic, jumping, body rotation in full swing and they're the best in it.

not ture.
TRUE! Most bodies are not strong or flexible enough to stand the rigors of a top athlete. Players like Kei, Chang and Justine Henin had to train very hard to get their rather frail bodies strong enough to become top tennis players. Perhaps Kei could pump up some more so as to not put too much strain on his body, perhaps not? He definitely needs to be very careful in his tournament selections.

You're actually agreeing with me. Asians are good at table tennis because it doesn't involve the high aerobic capacity that they are generally lacking.

Not everyone has the body needed for sports. You can have a good serve, and great voley but tennis is a very competitive sport.

Federer makes it look easy. Rafa makes it look like torture. Some guys are just more prone to injury then others.

Doesnt matter how great conditioning you have freak twists and turns happen.

He is injury prone because of Nadal's playing style.
