In a courtside interview yesterday Rafael Nadal said that he is still not sure if he can play the US Open. The former No. 1 has been beleaguered by a return of knee issues which have prevented him from playing any events this summer.
Through translation, Nadal said this knee injury is different than other years. He also added that he cannot say “yes or no” if he will play the US Open. Training and recovery has also been a slow process for Rafa.
Nadal has already withdrawn from the Olympics, Toronto and this week’s Cincinnati tournament. Nadal first began experiencing knee problems in early June after winning his seventh French Open title.
The US Open begins a week from next Monday.
