Rafael Nadal’s foot injury is not as bad as first thought. Nadal, who injured his left foot in the first set of his four set win yesterday over Juan Martin Del Potro, posted on his facebook page that the MRI san was negative:
“Good morning everybody. Yesterday after the match I went to take an MRI at a London hospital. During the match I thought I had something serious but as the match went through the pain got better and thankfully the tests don’t show an injury. Today I will practice at 4.30 pm and I’ll play tomorrow. Thanks all for the support.”
Nadal will play Mardy Fish tomorrow in the quarterfinals. The World No. 1 has never lost to Fish in five matches.
Rafa has been plagued by injury issues in his last four Grand Slam losses.
Prior to the injury, Nadal said he will not be part of the upcoming USA-Spain Davis Cup tie in Austin, Texas.
