    I really think he needs to rest. Being such a responsible and dutiful nephew, he will do whatever his coach think is right. But look at him during the match, I think he is a little bit tired. Please let Nadal rest !! 😦

      Chieko san, I think you’re very right about this.

      This is the time of the season where Rafa usually breaks down a little, and I think it might be possible that just because his knees are doing so much better, people may be overlooking the toll his very physical game – though now it’s still more strategic – takes out of him.

        I think players have to make difficult choices when it comes to non mandatory events. The physical style players eg: Rafa, Ferru and some others need to make wise choices because of the heavy toll on their bodies, minds too, I don’t care how tough and fit they are, something has to give eventually. We’re talking years of gruelling slog, training, media and other commitments, long haul travel and pressure to defend points etc. However, we shouldn’t forget, the top 20 are very well rewarded financially. At the same time, there are international fans to consider too. It’s a double edged sword really, if they play too much they risk burn out and injury and can’t give of their best, if they don’t play enough and cherry pick too much, they get rusty which ironically can also lead to injury and loss of stamina when pushed to a long match by a tough opponent. It’s getting the balance right for their own wellbeing, and secondly not disappointing too many fans if they choose not to play.

    He should join the buddhist thai meditation instead of practising more and more without rest!
