Yay! More Nole fans! Gotta appreciate his game, work ethic, and general affability. His Twitter feed is next to none as far as tennis players go.
I read that Rafa's knees are stilll bothering him and that is the real reason he pulled out of Australia. I dunno...I hope the real reason is...he saw reason, and clay is where he really needs to make his comeback.
Kim Clijsters retired then made her comeback on her best surface, hardcourt. She was realistic and never foolish enough to even try to play on clay during her 'second career.' Rafa does not need to waste his remaining tennis time on hard courts. He can make some feeble attempt on grass, but he really should let that go too. He has one or two RG left in him if he just dedicates himself to clay.
