Rafael Nadal sat down with CNN’s Pedro Pinto in Manacor recently to discuss his hearbreaking withdrawal from the 2012 London Olympics.
Nadal, who won the Gold at 2008 Beijing, was scheduled to also carry the flag for Spain, an honor that will now go to his friend Pau Gasol.
Nadal said he will follow the games on TV while rehabbing his knee. He says he is hopeful of representing Spain at the 2016 Rio games, four years from now.
The 26-year-old Nadal is still scheduled to return in two weeks for the Toronto Masters 1000 on August 6.
