The most popular knees in tennis aren’t the ailment of note when talking about Rafael Nadal. The former No. 1 revealed to the press this afternoon that he’s suffering from pain in one of his wisdom teeth.
Nadal said, “I have to take out all, but not now. I didn’t practice for a few days. I started to practice yesterday afternoon. I’m hoping it be better today and tomorrow.”
Nadal did temper any panic by saying earlier he felt great.
“I am feeling great,” Nadal said. “I was fast, I was aggressive, I was moving very good in Indian Wells. I was very happy how I played. I was playing at my best level during the tournament.”
For those who do not know, having your wisdom teeth removed can be complicated. And often you are unable to exercise or fly for days following the procedure.
