Then in early 2011 she had the blood clot incident that was so serious, she supposedly almost died. Yet a couple of months later she was back on the court. In all, she was out of the game for almost a year following Wimbledon 2010. Upon her return she seemed to be as good as ever.
Now that I think of it, there are many similarities to the current Nadal absence, including numerous injuries following Wimbledon and continuing on for months.
