Roger unable to play

31.10.2008 | Off Court

Dear Fans,


Due to a stiff back, I have decided to pull out of my match against James Blake tonight. My back has been stiff for the last couple of days and I woke up this morning and it did not respond to the treatment I had last night. As a precaution and because I would be unable to play at 100% tonight, I have unfortunately had to take the difficult decision not to play. I thank the tournament and French fans for their understanding and support.  


All the best,

1- Murray

Thanks for posting Nadal's letter to his fans.

Some people might think it's sweet that his English is so poor, but I really think he needs to employ someone to translate for him...it would be more professional for the #1 tennis player to produ

Dear Roger,

Please take care of your health. It is more important to take care of your health than winning trophies. I wish you will get in better shape and delight us with your master play at the Shanghai Masters.

Yes, just seen the article about Nadal withdrawing from Shanghai on ATP website, if anyone is interested.

It doesn't mention the Davis Cup in article, but I'm sure he is wanting to be able to play this. However, I doubt Spain can win this on a
