Out of US Open

Nadel pulls out of the US Open citing a wrist injury caused during a training session in July.  He had hoped to be recovered by the start of the championships on August 25th.

I am very sorry to announce I won’t be able to play at this year’s US Open. I am sure you understand that it is a very tough moment for me since it is a tournament I love and where I have great memories from fans, the night matches, so many things. Not much more I can do right now, other than accept the situation and, as always in my case, work hard in order to be able to compete at the highest level once I am back.

Beats Rosol, advances

Announcement

Nadal beats Lukas Rosol in a game lasting two hours and 44 minutes on Wimbledon Centre Court.  Two years ago, Rosol knocked Nadal out of the tournament in the second round of play. The score: 4-6, 7-6, 6-4, 6-4  Nadal advances to the third round.   Nadal says:

I never play for revenge.  Every match is a different match. Today was another match, I had to win – my goal is not Rosol;  it’s to play as well as I can in the tournament. It doesn’t matter if it’s Rosol or another player who has beaten me in the past.
