Injuries and Illness - and good luck wishes


So as I suspected, not a grain of actual evidence, and I'll put this down to your personal dislike of Nadal.

No, I'm not a lawyer but I have followed the sport for over 60 years.Yes, I can't stand the guy's style of play or his personality. The evidence is circumstantial but don't you find the following when grouped together just a tiny bit suspicious? Link to Dr Fuentes and thus Lance Armstrong and widespread Spanish doping scandal. Very sudden bulking up in his late teens. Astonishing and repeated feats of endurance and recovery. Slipping off his chair in a press conference-never explained. Regularly missing the same stage of each part of season-just possibly linked to juicing up periods? Many players have exhibited some of these traits but only Nadal has the full collection!

Thanks. You readily admit it's circumstantial but at least that's a bit more 'substance', so to speak. I'll go away and think it over.

All the Lance Armstrong evidence was circumstantial, he never tested positive and technically Marion Jones didn't either (Her B sample came back negative) Sport is littered with drug cheats that never get caught because either the drugs they use are ahead of the drug testing regime which is what happened with BALCO, their National Federation is involved (Russia) or they make sure they are in a Country with an unsophisticated drug testing regime when they are likely to test positive.

ETA  People on here may not like The Daily Mail because of their right wing sway but all the news outlets look to The Mail to break any story that could potentially get them sued as The Mail have the deepest pockets.

Real shame.

Wish her well.

That's what Katie Boulter had too, a spinal stress fracture

Wasn't sure where to ask this but - I know Paul Jubb is injured, any update on that? And where are Jay Clarke and Ali Gray?

Jack Sock also retires at the US Open

www.atptour.com/en/news/sock-announces-retirement-us-open-2023

For me, a career that could have been so much more - he was talented to have been top 10 singles fixture and to have got closer in singles slams, and also be the worlds top doubles player. I guess the Tour Finals in London was his peak in some ways, I loved watching him but wish hed done more

FWIW Not sure if anyone else noticed or not (or it's old news and someone already commented) but Kevin Anderson has come out of retirement. Was in US open qualies

Anderson has been back for a while now, think hes played a couple tournaments. Realised he missed it too much. You are a long time retired so why not I say. Still competitive enough it seems and will see it more as a hobby with no pressure.
