Not much in the way of new info here: Nadal recovery ‘going well’. (Thanks k for posting the link.)
“Rafa’s knee is getting better,” Toni said. “The recovery is going pretty well.
“From the stands I first advised him to call the physio and then to retire since it was obvious to me he couldn’t keep playing.
“Retirement was the right decision to take at that time.”
Coaching? From the stands? (Does coaching in regards to injury count as coaching?)
“If we go throughout his career, you can tell me he’s got some physical problems,” agreed Toni. “But tennis is a very aggressive game and injuries are normal things to happen.
“Now Rafa has some problems on his foot, so he needs special insoles to correct the footstep.
“Apart from that we are all very happy with how things are going on so far.”
Toni also seemed unconcerned about Nadal’s drop down the rankings, saying that Grand Slam wins are higher on the list of priorities for the Spaniard.
“Everybody would like to remain at the very top of the ATP rankings, but at the end of the day what tennis players want is to win tournaments,” he said.
“Now, we are just focusing on getting Rafa back fighting for the Grand Slams.”
