Nadal's knees never quite recover. Again, tendonitis, the injury that is doing more damage in the Spaniard, he has departed from a great quote. Rafa has not played since their elimination at Wimbledon. Then came the resignations of the 'Alma Nadal' (an exhibition match with Novak Djokovic at the Santiago Bernabeu), the London Olympics (where he was to be the flagship Spanish), to 1,000 from Toronto Masters and now the U.S. Open.
Thus, Nadal will not defend the points earned by getting to the final last year he lost to Novak Djokovic, so his third place in the world rankings is at risk for Andy Murray, brand new Olympic gold medal and Wimbledon finalist.
