Rod Laver, a true legend of tennis, who won the Grand Slam in 1962 and in 1969, recently analyzed Rafael Nadal's situation.


"The absence of Nadal is a great loss for a tournament like the Australian Open. I wanted to say hello, just like last year, but various physical problems have not allowed him to fly up here. If he had withdrawn because of the stomach virus, then we can be calm, but if it is still the knee keeping him out of action ... well, we have to worry aboutthat . I hope that the long absence has not diminished the confidence of Rafa. The return after an injury of this type is really hard. Going to be difficult. However, I see that the guy is looking at any solution before returning . Paradoxically, he did well to skip the Australian Open. Hard courts...best of 5 sets, extreme heat. Harsh conditions for anyone, let alone for someone who has not played for six months! "

Rod then focused on the upcoming Slam: "At this point in his career Federer never ceases to amaze. But i see big things for Djokovic . He can play well here. Pay attention also to Ferrer. With today's materials and with his athleticism, he has always to be considered."
