Borg quit at the same age as Nadal when he was 26 he also won 11 slams just like Nadal. I think something personal is going on with Nadal, I don't think it is just because he has a stomach virus. Remember, in 2009, Nadal's parents were having marital problems and compounded with losing to Soderling he lost his confidence. Nadal needed time to recover. I believe Nadal has the knee problem which is physical but he might also be going through something emotionally in his life as well. Perhaps, Nadal has a psychological problem which compounds with his physical injury?
