    Sure it was nothing too serious he didn't ask for a medical time out.

    One man's "Oh no" is an "Oh yes" for somebody else. I am sure people that are scheduled to play Nadal are rejoicing over this piece of news.

    Nadal trolls will be happy to have an excuse IF he somehow loses!

    Now Nadal has a preemptive excuse if he doesn't win the title this year. That means nobody will get credit for winning RG unless they beat Nadal while he is playing at 100%. Anything less doesn't count.

    By the same note, we can argue that the only reason Nadal won Wimbledon is due to Federer having mono. Fact is though he won it, and if another player wins RG this year people will have to learn to live with it, just like Federer fans have to live with the fact that Federer lost that epic Wimbledon final.

    This is no excuse. You grind, you pay for it. End of story.

    Do you have the exact quote? Because I read the post match press conference (in Spanish and in English) and Nadal did NOT say anything about his knee hurting. He said his footwork was a little slow but he didn't mention anything about pain or an injury. He said he was fine in his blog as well. Maybe that journalist is just trying to start a rumor...

    Help, I'm steppin' into the twilight zone....
    Funny how when someone mentions an "injury" about a player, people start putting an asterisk beside the victories of those that beat them as if to say that the victory was tainted by a less than 100% effort on the part of the "injured". Excuses or not, a win is a win and a loss is a loss and at the level these players are playing at, that's all that counts.

    I doubt its anything serious at all..he just looked like he was getting used to the conditions there and obviously I thought Daniel too played very well...

    Those who claim to be fans of Nadal and
    1) Bring down and take credit away from other players who beat Nadal
    2) Bring down Nadal by claiming he has multiple weaknesses
    3) Come up with excuses every time Nadal loses
    4) Believe that no one can beat Nadal fair and square without some contributing factor helping them, e.g. humidity, altitude, exhaustion, ATP schedule, injury, Nadal's bad attitude, etc etc etc

    Sounds like gloating then, to say you were injured but STILL managed to win. Typical Nadal.

    I don't call them Nadal fans.I'm a Rafa supporter but i 'd never let fanboyism cloud my judgement.Nadal himself never came up with some ridiculous excuseds when he loses,so should those that label themselves as his "fans".

    Oui, je suis francaise mais je pense que ce journaliste raconte n'importe quoi. Qu'est-ce que ca veut dire "laisse entendre"? J'ai entendu son interview d'apres match et il n'a rien laisse entendre du tout. C'est le journaliste qui extrapole.
    And notice that the quote the journalist gives is the same one as I heard: he's just saying his footwork was slow, he doesn't mention an injury. The journalist is just inventing stuff.

    Ignore them. Since Fed's victory, there is a bunch of new trolls here that are making a profession of jumping at Nadal's throat nonstop. As soon as Fed loses, they'll calm down. Right now the best thing is to completely ignore them.

    Will not matter since this is nothing new and in anycase by the time djoko and federer get done with the SF, the winner will barely be able to walk. :)

    Tu suis ces matches sur quelles chaînes? Si ce journaliste a extrapolé comme tu l'as dit,alors il n'est digne d'exercer ce métier.

    The same can be said for Nadal fans.


    Personally, I like both. Why can't we just enjoy the tennis (and save the flaming for the off season :twisted:)

    Of course, they're both great players, correction: all 4 players are great. The level is very high in men's tennis right now.

    No, thank you.When you blame others for the same thing you've been doing all this long it shows how low you could go and it shows your style.
