Nadal “Desperately Trying To Get Back On The Tour”

‘My knee is coming along okay, but a stomach virus has left me unable to get ready in time to tackle the rigours of a grand slam.

Because of the virus, I have been unable to get any match practice and simply would not be doing myself or my friends in Australia justice if I went down there so unprepared.

You need your body to be at its best for the Australian Open.

It was a difficult decision and I am extremely disappointed to be missing such a great event.

I love coming to Melbourne and playing on Rod Laver Arena before the Australian crowds. It brings out the best in me.

It hurts to have to wait another 12 months before I get another chance. In the meantime, the focus is now on desperately trying to get back on the tour.’

Interesting.
