"Nadal replied to the reporter of Aspetar, a sports medical magazine, “I remember it was a shoulder lesion a few years ago. There was not such professionalism like we have now and they didn’t know the evolution of the lesion. Initially I was recommended to see the doctor of the Spanish Tennis Federation, but since my uncle was playing with the Barcelona FC football team at the time, he took me to see the doctor of the football club. This doctor prescribed anti-inflammatory. I then went to see the doctor of the Spanish Tennis Federation who prescribed some exercises which were aimed at preventing future injuries. These were very effective.”"
I hadn't heard of this shoulder injury. When would that have been?. When they talked about a career-threatening injury I thought they surely meant the foot injury.
