Rafael Nadal Out of Wimbledon 2009 With Tendonitis in Both Quadriceps Tendons

At Wimbledon the weather was not the reason this time that dark rain clouds descended on the hallowed lush green courts

No today the day was somewhat much darker, as Rafael Nadal had to pull out of the men’s singles championship and will not defend his Wimbledon crown because of knee injuries

Injury Profile

• After the appropriate tests (MRI, Ultrasound scans and gammagraphy) Mr. Rafael Nadal suffers from insertion tendonitis in the superior end of both kneecaps with a light osseous edema

• Treatment will involve oral anti-inflammatories, physiotherapy as well as progressive muscular exercises for both quadriceps's.


Rafa Nadal Press Comments :-

• "Not to play Wimbledon is one of the toughest decisions in my career but the decision was made easier because I don't feel ready to compete at 100%," said Nadal. "I don't feel like I'm ready to play in a tournament that is as important as Wimbledon."

• "I tried everything," said Nadal. "I tried hard in the last week to get in the best condition and today was my last test. I didn't feel terrible but I was not at my best."

What is well known to all who follow ATP Tennis is that Raphael Nadal is not a quittter
He has an injury problem right now, it is regrettable and he will be sorely missed at Wimbledon 2009
But he will be back, and we wish him a complete and speedy recovery!
