Yep.. been rumours about this on VR for long time now.
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.
..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.
(Muahahaa... i am bit of a traitor.)
