    Nadal looks happy, but not particularly strong. Its going to take some time to get into playing shape...

    Or or under 55 years old before he has to be in a cane/wheelchair?

    over or under 35 before he needs bionic knees?

    Rafa obviously missed the AO because he is still in the awkward hair phase and not because of some virus/knee issue.

    Not sure about that. Looks the same now as he did in 2012 and 2009, the years he made final of AO-

    He does, and she looks quite happy :)

    Where is he that he would be in the same gym as her?.

    He was in Barcelona. Not sure if he's still there or not, though.

    He looks fit and healthy, I'm sure he will make a great return to play.

    Well I said he looked happy...

    Even though the ladies seem to like his slighter fuller face in those pics; he doesn't look like he's in match playing shape to me. Which makes sense, since he hasn't played a match in months.

    His face looks the same to me(other than he needs to shave badly). I think the terrible haircut he is sporting right now is to blame for you thinking his face looks fat. He actually looks to have lost a little weight since he hasn't been playing.

    yeah what'swith his hair? In the first pic it looks weirdly piled up on his head, in the second pic he actually looks quite nice I think, not the hair, but his face, the 3rd doesn't even look like Nadal

    I think he's lost some muscle weight but seems a little less lean to me...

    maybe I'm seeing things.

    You may be right about him being a little less lean. I'd have to see him shirtless to know for sure though. :wink:

    If the AO was worth playing, Nadal would be in the final.

    Seems to be worth playing only when he has a remote chance of winning.

    Why is the AO this year not worth playing?
    What is different compared to the last year?

    :-?

    Nothing, just saying its not as important as Roland Garros and Wimbledon, plus its been a health hazard both years that Nadal made the final - the doomed years of 2009 and 2012. Worth playing? Obviously not.

    It's not as important as Wimbledon. You are right. Why was Nadal not in the final there this year, and not playing in 09?

    Nadal looks very slim his muscle mass seems have gone down dramatically in the photos his body doesn't look toned like it used to be. I don't think Nadal is in as great shape as people think he is in.

    It's hard to believe Pennetta is only 30 years old.

    Anyone else think Nadal stopped taking care of himself? He always looks like he just rolled out of bed.

    Saying, that a Major is not important, is as delusional, as thinking, that Lance Armstrong never doped.

    Duh,,,,,,, because of the Australian Open. The Australian Open destroyed Nadal's body in 2009 and 2012. Playing 7 rounds on that suicide surface is too much. His knees got worse and worse since the AO until they were gone by mid-year. You just observed it in 2012. Same thing in 2009.

    Well of course he isn't in as great shape as half-man Mauresmo is. He's been thinner than her since 2009.

    And Nadal looked even thinner when he won the 2009 Australian Open-

    As thin as Federer!
