Nadal out 2 more months
« on: September 03, 2012, 06:17:09 AM »
Nadal announces he is out for 2 more months due to the knee.  Must be that extra golf he is playing.   :innocent:

In this article:


http://es.eurosport.yahoo.com/noticias/nadal-meses-m%C3%A1s-dique-seco-095015975.html


Quote
presenta una ruptura parcial del tendón rotuliano a nivel de su inserción en el polo distal de la rótula, más una inflamación de la grasa de hoffa de la rodilla Izquierda. Desde que se le diagnostico dicha ruptura, Rafa ha estado realizando un tratamiento médico basado en medicación especifica, fisioterapia, programa de rehabilitación y potenciación muscular progresiva".



According to this text, he has more than just some "hoffa fat" on his left knee, it says he has a broken (partial) tendon (I can't translate that, I just don know what "rotuliano" means), ever since this diagnostics came out, Rafa has been undergoing a medical treatment, based on specific meds, fisiotherapy and rehab and progressive muscular "treatment".


This doesn't look good for Nadal, I always though it was just some fat on his knees, now everything is coming out on the open....


Good news "Nadal says" is that after all these months, doctors have told Nadal that the evolution has been a positive one in the last few weeks and they have been able to avoid surgery. He will continue to work just as the doctors have told him to and will be able to compete again in the near future (at least 2 and a half more months).


So, good news, he won't have any surgery, bad news, it's that it is just not some fat, and maybe will affect in the near future his development and his career.. who knows... Nadal says he will be alright and that he is sure to have many more years competing at 100% on tour. I just hope this is true, but for the looks of it, it is not going to be easy for him to return to court as soon as he hoped for.

Nadal out 2 more months

The longer he's out - the harder it will be when he returns. Men's tennis isn't like the WTA where they can be out for years and then come back and win a major off the bat. It took Del Po about a year to get back to where he was (if he's even there yet). And Nadal has always been one of these players who had to play a lot just to get his rhythm.

Wonder that that will do to his ranking too.  Hope his knee heals up OK...

"rotula" is the patella, or kneecap...

Apparently he has a partial tear of the patellar tendon, plus the already mentioned Hoffa syndrome.

As to his ranking :
By not playing at the USO, he will lose 1200 points from last year, dropping to 7515 pts.
Murray can overtake him by reaching the final, or winning the whole thing.

yes he means what he says(that he will compete at 100% for many more years)........he knows that he can play in extreme pain when needed or even avoid such situations at all just by scheduling a little better........but sensible scheduling not being his thing, he will continue missing an odd tournament here and there........from what his doctors said, tendinitis is not a career ending injury but it will pop up whenever the knee is pushed to the very limit........the key is to take a break at the first sign of pain........

Of course the fanboys/girls who say Nadal fakes injuries when he's losing never feel obligated to eat their words.

A torn patella tendon is just an excuse.

Such classy fans. :good:

I've read some serious nonsense this week. Maybe I would have just laughed if it was the first.

 :\   That was unnecessary, Babbs has been an absolute gentleman on this forum for such a long time. Infact your post was sad to read. I am a Rafa fan and I hate to see him out of the tour for a couple of months more. Looks like you guys like seeing him injured. I would hate this to happen to any athlete.
