Whilst sportsmen in other disciplines sometimes receive a bad press, men’s tennis is widely regarded as a gentleman’s game. It perhaps comes as no surprise then, that Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray have been quick to wish Rafael Nadal a quick recovery following the news that the Spaniard will miss out on this year’s US Open.

“He's a great competitor, somebody I know really well on and off the court,” said Djokovic of the French Open champion. “I'm sure that if he was able to perform in US Open he would come. So I wish him a quick recovery.

Federer remarked, “It's not a surprise because I wrote to him and he told me it wasn't looking good at all. But obviously when it's official it's disappointing for tennis, there's no doubt about it. I would love to have him in the draw. With 12 days before the Open you figure he might still have time to fix what he has to fix to get ready.”

“If he pulls out that early before the Open, it must be something serious. That's what is sort of scary. There is obviously the whole debate going on if he is going come back for this year.”

Murray also expressed sympathy towards Nadal. “I'm disappointed for him, it's obviously tough. He's had trouble with his knees in the past. So I hope he can rest, doesn't come back too early, and gets them fixed so he can get back to playing his best tennis.”

Tennis fans worldwide will be keen to see Rafa back in action, as will all of us at live-tennis.com. Hopefully the time out will help Nadal to finally put his injury woes well and truly behind him.
