Out for the rest of the Grand Slam season, FO, Wimbledon and the US Open. Surgery took place in Barcelona and will remain there a month before returning to Argentina to fully recover. And hoping its fully.

I'll miss him. So will he get the protected ranking thing? I don't really understand that too well. Does someone want to explain it? Or I'll go educate myself.

Perfect, he'll be back in time to play incredibly during the indoor season, make us all wonder why he isn't consistently contending for Slams, and then dash our hopes sometime after the season starts in January.

Seriously, I like Nalbo, but the inconsistency/lack of focus drives me nuts. He'd be such a great foil for the top guys if he would be more consistently driven.

That's too bad. How fortunate for Nadal. He won't have to face the one guy that can spank him around a tennis court. :)
