Nadal Is OUT Of The Olympics

News has just broke on the BBC Sport page that Rafa has withdrawn from the Olympic Games at Wimbledon.

A sad decision but the correct one.  The knees are obviously not ready and it is correct to think long term.

Rafa's Knee Is Troubling Him again

The latest episode of tendinitis has meant the exhibition match against Novak due to take place at the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu in Madrid.

It is unsure if he has once again undergone PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatment but the word is that he will still play at Wimbledon again this year, for Spain during the London 2012 Olympic Games.

This is very obviously an ongoing problem for Rafa that will never cease, certainly whilst playing tennis.  It seems that his knees are now in such a condition that regular treatment is the only way for him to continue.  Hopefully a good rest will do him some good and he is ready to compete once again.
