Nadal who is yet to play a competitive game,since his defeat to Lukas Rosol in the second round of the Wimbledon Open,said that the combination of sickness and injury means he will not be fit enough to play in Melbourne. Only last week ,Nadal was forced to wirthdraw from the Abu Dhabi championship,because of a stomach virus. Speaking to the tournament’s official website,Nadal said : “I am sorry and very sad to announce that I will not play in the Australian Open,” he told the tournament’s official website. “My knee is coming along okay, but a stomach virus has left me unable to get ready in time to tackle the rigours of a Grand Slam. “Because of the virus, I have been unable to get any match practice and simply would not be doing myself or my friends in Australia justice if I we ...
These days, the concern was escalated, especially after the announcement of the withdraw in Abu Dhabi, where he was to play an exhibition tournament in the company, including Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and David Ferrer. He hoped to be restored to align to Doha to be some matches in the legs but obviously it is not able to go to Qatar. The package for Melbourne became inevitable. "This is a very difficult decision to make, further explained the champion of Manacor. I am extremely disappointed to miss an important event. I love coming to Melbourne, I love Rod Laver Arena and the public, which reveals the best of myself. It hurts me that I have to wait 12 months to know it again. " "This decision is completely understandable and we feel really sad for him, for his part reacted Craig Tiley, Director of the Australian Open., But no game without sufficient training and preparation, it is virtually impossible his body is ready. We hope to see soon. " Winner in Melbourne in 2009, his only title in Australia, Nad ...
TENNIS:- Rafael Nadal heads into 2013 with his career in freefall and needing to summon up the no-surrender spirit that steered him to 11 Grand Slam titles, the world No 1 spot and $50 million in prize money. The 26-year-old Spaniard hasn't played since June and on Friday announced that he will skip the 2013 Australian Open because of a stomach virus. But many in the sport believe that Nadal's lengthy battle against knee injuries, which have plagued his career and kept him off tour since his shock Wimbledon second round loss to world number 100 Lukas Rosol, remains his prime concern. "He told me he's not 100 per cent right now and wants to wait a little bit," said compatriot Nicolas Almagro, who took Nadal's place at the Abu Dhabi exhibition tournament where he had been due to make his comeback this week. "He doesn't want to play in Melbourne, it's five sets, his knee's not really good, he's not ready for that.
TENNIS:- Rafael Nadal has made another twist in the story of his comeback. The 11-time Grand Slam champion has said that although he is hoping to be back at the start of next season but he is not ruling out the possibility of staying away from Australian Open if he fails to attain 100 percent fitness. The Spaniard stated in a recent interview, “I will hopefully be ready for Australia but I am only looking at tomorrow and continuing my recovery. I have the goal of returning in Abu Dhabi but neither Abu Dhabi nor Australia are the end of the world for me. I will only come back when I am fit. I won't come back worrying about my knee.” It seems that Nadal, who has not played a single tournament since surprisingly losing to Lukas Rosol in the second round of Wimbledon, is not planning to take slightest of risk this time. The Spaniard kept on playing with injured knee throughout the winter hard court season and summer clay court season and it resulted in his layoff from tour for entire second half of the se ...
World Sports News Nadal to make long-awaited return Rafael Nadal will make his long-awaited return to tennis after an agonising six-month knee injury battle in the Gulf this week, but has warned he is not expecting any title-winning pyrotechnics. The 26-year-old Spaniard joins world No.1 Novak Djokovic and third-ranked Andy Murray in the six-player, three-day Mubadala Championships ahead of his return to the ATP circuit at Doha from December 31. Nadal hasn't played since his shock second round exit to 100th-ranked Lukas Rosol at Wimbledon in June, missing the Olympics, the US Open as well as the Davis Cup final against the Czech Republic which his country lost. Although desperate to play again, Nadal is equally keen to play down expectations. "Abu Dhabi is a test. My goal is not this week, not Doha or the Australian Open. My goal is to get fit, recover all my feelings. The only thing I care about is the knee," the seven-time French Open champion said. "The idea is to go from there. I won't give much value ...
