    Maybe, try to hit a few winners

    Maybe, try standing closer to the baseline to return, use the servers energy against him.

    Maybe, try dropping string tension 2lbs

    Wow that is sad. I hate how they work these guys to death, I mean Nadal chooses to do it, he's a "Big Boy", but that is sad, hope he can return, he's one guy that I like despite not liking his style.

    Cup8489 had a beautiful response for that one in picture form. I'd like him to put it in here if he reads this.

    He had said many times he was not coming back until he didn't feel any pain, and now it's clear that they lacked the time to go through with that plan so he came back anyway. It may well be worse than they say. I don't see what else he could do though, other than give up this year's clay season and he must not be wiling to. If it isn't as fine as they've said or gets worse with playing, I doubt they're going to tell us.

    Agreed..........

    I think that you are right and now Raf has dropped out of the doubles in SP. His docs are now stating more to the story:

    This sounds like it was a test to see how far he could go on the knee. And now his doc is saying that Raf should start slowly. As you say, there is a lot more going on here than they will say. Time will tell soon though.

    Cheers, TennezSport :cool:
