Nadal's seasons since 2012:Those weren't injury-related, tho.
If it's serious which it sounds like, taking a break for a couple of months will help him a lot instead playing through injury and worsening it. Like Nadal and Federer, he probably should also choose to play a shorter season from next year onwards. Hope he can still get the record weeks at #1 at some point though.It’s too bad if it’s true but he should prioritize getting better. Winning YE1 would have been a nice addition to his resume but not at the cost of shortening what’s left of his career. Come on Nole, take all the time you need and come back strong for the AO20!
