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,

Yeah, it's official...


Now we just need confirmation from ROGER that he will be there defending his title.

I just checked on Nadal's site. The news is there. So it's true, he's not playing at the TMC

It is true not just a rumor. Nada will not play. He wants to get better for the Davis Cup.

I'm sure you're right. looking at the parents and the fact that J-W has had to struggle during the past few years.

Is it true about Nadal or is it a rumour that he is out of TMC?

Confirmed that Nadal has withdrawn - what about Roger ? He was supposed to fly to Shanghai on Monday ? Any news ?

Yes, Simon is 9th in the race, so he should go to the TMC.
Bravo petit poussin! Quelle année pour toi ! J’aime entendre ton joli accent niçois, délicieux !

Thanks for this news! WOW!

We already knew that Foni was telling the truth this time about Nada's bad state... He he….We know why too…

But honestly, I never thought our VICIOUS operation would be that s

So our Rogie will be the #1.
It is interesting to see that Nadal has not won a ATP tourney since his #1 ranking.
Shanghai will be even better than expected. We will not have to suffer thru the Nada's matches.

Does this mean Simon is in?

If Nadal doesn't participate in Shanghai , then who will replace him ?
