    I just read on the bbc 606 tennis fans site that in spain Toni has said that Rafa’s commitment to Wimbledon is also uncertain! I couldn’t bare it if Rafa has anything serious. Can anyone find a link on this? This is getting scary now, with all this Fed and G.O.A.T. talk this is just about the icing on the cake. As usual Fed wins a GS without much resistance. A Wimbledon without Rafa wouldn’t be the same but on saying that I’d hate him to go there and get knocked out early, such a sad time, all this talk at RG about his left knee injury in practice is being discussed and the end of his career etc.. can anyone cheer me up, so depressed right now… this is supposed to be the part of the season when Rafa shines the most..

      We can speculate and worry all we want, but I doubt anyone on the Nadal team will say anything definitive until the last possible moment. Unless the injury is severe (which I doubt), they probably won’t know for sure until the last possible moment. All that being said, Rafa’s agent is acting positive but safe in the press:

      Nadal’s agent Benito Perez-Barbadillo said the Spaniard will continue to monitor his knee but at this stage he is not a doubt for Wimbledon.

      “I don’t think you can call it a risk but obviously he needs to check on the knee and see how it evolves this week and we will know more next week,” he said.

      “It comes and goes, he has decided with his doctors its better to stay at home to keep working on his physical condition.

      “Hopefully he will be ready for Wimbledon, that is what he has said, hopefully he will be there.”

    Maybe I’m grasping at straws here, but if he takes the knee troubles seriously and rehabs properly during this part of the season, perhaps he’ll have a better chance to go all the way at the USO? I mean, it definitely sounds like his team is being careful and has the whole year and especially the last remaining slam-to-be-won in mind. In the past, he’s just played with pain in quite a few tournaments.

    Am I drinking the Kool-Aid? Yes. Yes, I am. *slurp slurp*

    Sweet dear Rafael perhaps needs his rest before Wimby. I was saddened to hear the news with being the reigning champ and all. The break shall do him good for now anyhow….

    gosh all the talk about hopefully making wimbledon is making me nervous. i’m just feeling for rafa right now. i hope he recouperates in the next few weeks before wimby. would be too sad not to have him play there. i know they’re just being cautious by saying he ‘hopes’ to be there, but it really is worrying. anyway, just gotta pray for the best for rafa. i so miss him right now. not being able to watch him in action at RG, and no Queens to look forward too. just hope he’s resting up and training well, the sweetheard.
