Nadal forced out by injury

Quote

Quote
French Open champion Rafael Nadal has withdrawn from next month's Chennai Open as he struggles to overcome a persistent foot injury.

The 19-year-old Spaniard first sustained the problem in the Madrid Masters final in October and withdrew from the Masters Cup in November.

This doesn't surprise me at all - I've always been of the opinion that Nadal pushes himself too hard and will eventually experience burn out - it's the whole reason why I think Andy Murray will outlast the likes of Nadal, Hewitt, Roddick etc.  Andy is not even close to the top of his game, and it all seems to be coming naturally to him without him having to strain himself unnecessarily.

Rafael Nadal has confirmed that he will not play at next week's Australian Open as he struggles with a foot injury.

The 19-year-old world number two has not played since picking up the injury - which has since caused a calf muscle strain - at October's Madrid Masters.

Crying or Very sad  no Yep.. been rumours about this on VR for long time now.  no  Crying or Very sad
Awfull stuff, and in away it's obviously really sad because he had to pull out of the Shangai Masters for left knee tendositis.. and a month on nothing has changed. On the other hand, i totally agree with ellyb.. Rafa pushes himself way to hard. His scheduale is packed.. and i bow down to him over what he's achieved in 2005 (equalling Federer's result) and how he's climbed to number 2 from being something like 70 in March 2005.  goodjob ..but all this leads to physical and mental strain.
But im sort of liking the fact that Roddick can possibly get back to that number 2 spot, maybe number 1.. where he belongs. notworthy (Muahahaa... i am bit of a traitor.)  retard
