Aww - that's good to know! I think he usually takes part in Kids Day? Could be wrong though.
Well I'd rather it didn't take an injury to Nadal to get there, but I'm mighty glad Andy is no 8 seed now.
Me too! Is there any more news from the Rafa camp on what it means for the rest of the year?
I'm relieved for Andy's sake too, but I'm sure that he isn't too happy about it either coming as it does due to the absence of an injured player, and one he has a very high regard for as well.
As to whether Rafa will return to competition after the USO or not remains to be seen (report by his doctor) - http://www.tennisworldusa.org/Doctor-Cotorro-We-Dont-Know-When-Rafael-Nadal-Will-Be-Back-articolo19759.html
