Which knee is it?

Yesterday I saw Nadal's left knee strapped tightly but in the final set when Darcis played a volley and Nadal tried to rush to the net to retrieve it, he limped a bit and then held his right knee as he stopped.

So which is the troublesome one, right or left?

I noticed a few times also that he seemed to be more confident on the strapped knee than the other one. But not always.

I don't think his uncle had the meeting yet with his PR team to decide which knee they're going to choose for this one.:)

His left knee obviously. He couldn't hit a single backhand the entire match and went out of his way to hit FH, more so than ever before.

Hopefully he can be back at USO.

Tennis needs him, no?
 
Neither. I wish Roddick had made his "SARS/anthrax/etc." joke about Nadal. It's much more fitting.

"Well, either he's the most courageous guy in the world, or he's quick to call a trainer. It's up to you to decide."

I think to have the correct answer to that knee mystery, a Spanish "doctor"/"cutting edge alternative pharmaceutical lab" would be needed :)

It has always been the left knee since he returned after 7 months. However he never wears a bandage when he practices.

Yes I noticed that too but the same thing happened last year. espn showed a video of him leaving the grounds and getting into a car and he was limping as if it was his right knee that was hurting and we all know it's the left knee. Right? No, left? No right.

Yes he does, and has done so ever since he came back.
And even if he did not it would not matter as during practice he would not do any extreme footwork that needs the extra support. I am guessing the OP was talking pre match practice during a tournament and it is typically nice and easy (from the players' point of view)
