re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Personally i think this 'stomach virus' is a cover up for his knee. I don't think his knee is fully recovered yet, but they don't want to say anything.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Agree with you there, how can stomach virus make you go out for 4 weeks?

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

That certainly means that Ferrer will pass him in the rankings and most likely be seeded 4th for RG. That means that if Rafa returns in time, then there is a strong possibility that he faces Djokovic, Murray or Federer in the Quarter Finals.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

I wouldn't say certainly, after the Aussie Open(if Nadal plays after that tournament), there are still a few tournaments before the RG, in which Nadal can get points and still be seeded 4th.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Well with Nadal missing for over 8 months now, i think he may be rusty when he returns. I don't know when he'll return, but i expect it to be in time for clay season. Nadal is losing a load of points here, because he was a finalist last year, so it's most likely that he'll fall down in the rankings. Ferrer is 185 points behind Rafa atm, so will most likely pass him before the Australian open, get his Australian open points which will take him further ahead, and pick up his points after Australia to hold that spot. Ferrer is no mug on clay, so he'll likely pick up some good points during clay season.

Unless Ferrer screws up, i expect him to be seeded 4th at RG.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Viruses can be pretty bad or just one day things. I think it's more a case of it halting his rehab that's ruling him out. No way he'd be ready missing even more recovery time. French will be really interesting if he slips to 5th. Strong chance of him facing 3 of Federer/Djokivic/Murray/Ferrer if he makes the Final is
