I don’t wanna cause a big row here just an opinion. I like rafa. The recent announcement he pulled out of Rotterdam isn’t a surprise. Recent years theirs been a similar theme, aka skipping hard court in the spring in preparation for clay. We all KNOW- for facts Rafa is gonna play next up probably in Monte Carlo, playing at 250% he might get beat in one of the warm ups but at RG he will be like the terminator. Basically unstoppable. So in his press release, why doesn’t he just say that? ‘I’m 34, I need to manage the body better and schedule better in order to play at a higher level at grand slams’, instead of going back to the ‘injury’ that wasn’t apparent at the end of Australia. Pretty sure that’s what Feddy did back in 2017 when he was 35, skipped clay and basically told everyone he was prioritising grass and Wimbledon.
