Rafa is long-sighted. He may even withdraw from London (for the 3rd time?) and prepare for AO to go for bigger prize and bigger history. Man, he is smart.

“Medical reasons”, lol :)

Medical reasons? WTF ? Well get well Rafa.

Tendinitis in his shoulder, looks like. source: http://www.as.com/tenis/articulo/rafa-nadal-estara-masters-1000/dasten/20101105dasdasten_3/Tes

He needs the rest, though. Hopefully he can just rest up, and let the shoulder heal.
