Rafael Nadal disappointed

Tennis: Former world number one Rafael Nadal has announced on Monday that he would be unable to take part in the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters due to his recurring knee injury.

Nadal posted on his facebook page on Monday morning, “I am very sad to announce that I won’t be able to play in Monte Carlo. I am facing pain in my knee once again and do not find myself in a condition to compete. It’s one of the saddest days of my career as I always love to play there and wanted to win my ninth straight title there. Hope to be there next year.”

Tennis World had reported on Sunday that Nadal made a surprise visit to his doctor Mikel Sánchez in the USP La Esperanza clinic in Vitoria to have a check up of his knees.
Condition of Nadal’s knees was not clear till yesterday but this announcement has revealed that hard courts of Indian Wells harmed Spaniard’s knees. The 11-time Grand Slam champion captured his 22nd Masters titles at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells two weeks back.

After playing three clay court tournaments in four weeks on the clay courts of South America, Nadal was advised to not to risk his knees by playing on the hard courts of Indian Wells but he decided to play one of his favorite tournaments. Nadal won the titles but he had put his French Open titles defense in doubt now.

This news has dropped like a bomb on Nadal’s fans, which missed him for seven straight months before this. The Spanish star could not take part in some of the biggest events in the previous months but he got back with a bang. The 26-year-old had won eight straight titles in Monte-Carlo and was favorite to add a ninth one. They can only hope that this layoff would be not that long and the Spanish star would be back in Barcelona or Madrid.

Those readers who are feeling too sad after reading this news should check the date on their computers as they have been made April fool. Sorry guys, I know you are abusing me at the moment for playing with your emotions but I could not resist myself from doing this.
