    It seems that the platelet treatment Nadal had after Miami is doing well to his knees and more. (great timing I must agree with miraculously improved results)
    It would be prudent of Djoko and Fed to take preventive measures themselves as the bans of the treatment were lifted by World Anti-Doping agency some time ago. You can never be too careful with health...

    Murray could use some PRP in his back.

    The advances in medicine are tremendous. People shouldn't miss out on excellent opportunities. That's all

    Platelet treatment doesn't fix the old man injuries - back, shoulder etc.

    Yes, it does. It worked for Fred Couples and Vijay Singh.

    Ok, I guess Djokovic should look into it then (if he has another post-US Open collapse).

    Yeah but with so many hard courts which are soo bad on the knees, it's inevitable, no? People should take measures while it's time. Patelet treatment has many more other advantages as well

    It's funny that you criticize Nole for not being good after the USO. What has Nadal won after the USO? Nothing compared to what Djokovic has won.

    They need it about as much as you need a brain transplant. Which is to say, with dire urgency!

    Don't understand why so defensible. Can't all people benefit from successful and timely treatments? Seeing Nadal's form I can only recommend. Even though he struggled on Miami HC ( and at IW you could see he wasn't 100 %), he seems re-vitalised, injected with passion and energy, and with no troubles with his knees. That's great for the sport and the viewership. It was pure nonsense it was banned :(

    ssh, too much sense being made.

    Djokovic has won WTF, Paris, numerous smaller tournaments after USO.

    Nadal has, what? Tokyo, old Madrid?
