Benito Perez-Barbadillo, the public relations manager of Rafael Nadal, gave some news about his client in an interview with BBC radio.
"Rafa is currently in Majorca. Not happy [about the situation], but it's a necessary evil and then he finds serenity. He continues with his program of therapies and makes journeys to Barcelona to see his doctors. It takes time for the inflammation to disappear. He is currently at home and works at the gym as well as post photos on social networks. "
"I do not think his career is over, I remember back to 2009 and I think that this time he will return stronger than before. It is obvious, however, that the change of the surface for Rafa and his game has made a shocking impact that in the match has a flap especially when it’s physical. "
"He has a passion for tennis and even if he does not play, he follows it on TV. He and Murray are close friends, their entourage know each other well, I'm sure that he will be encouraged, as will Federer."
"Rafa wants to return to the Davis Cup final but will declaring an exact date for the return would be premature. We await the verdict of doctors. He will return only when he is fully recovered. "
