If he does retire at age 31 I think we'll see a comeback in his mid30s (and this makes sense as tendinitis reacts well to rest). Quite the opposite to Agassi's (sciatica) problems which sent Agassi into retirement with a lifetime limp. By the way, Federer, Djokovic and Murray have all had back problems. Nadal never has.
I think Rafa's injury problems are slightly more problematic than Fed,Djoko or Muzza
