Excerpts:

By Iain Rogers

MADRID (Reuters) - Rafael Nadal's recovery from tendonitis in both knees
appears to be progressing so well that he could be back at peak fitness
for the U.S. Open, according to a sports injury specialist at the
University of California.

...

"Nadal is a younger player so he certainly has a bigger capacity to
heal," said Anthony Luke, an associate professor and director in Primary
Care Sports Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco.

"He's definitely competitive which is a great sign," he added. "I do
think he has a chance to be at his peak at the U.S. Open and his rhythm
and performance should continue to improve as long as the knee doesn't
give any setbacks."

...

"Rafael Nadal is pure power and plays the game at 100 percent intensity
so each match he is putting so much more pressure on his tendons," Luke
said.

"In his favor are his athleticism and his conditioning, which are
outstanding. If anyone can come back from something like this it's a guy
like Nadal.

"He's obviously very motivated and disciplined with his training and
this will help in the healing process."

In very serious cases, surgery would be attempted to strip away scar
tissue on the tendon, but Nadal's reasonably rapid recovery without the
need to go under the knife suggested his problems were not especially
serious, Luke said.

...

The best-of-five sets matches at the U.S. Open will present an
additional challenge to Nadal's recovery and he remained cautious after
the Cincinnati event.

"We will see how I am physically to play the five set matches," he said.

"I know when I am playing well I can play at this level. But you only
can win against these top players when you are playing your best tennis."

Uncle Toni's rep has taken a thorough beating over the last 3 months. He
will shortly call a press conference to deny everything ...

Well, we now know what the minimum requirement is, thanks to Connors.
In a promo for the Tennis Channel's U.S. Open coverage, for which
he'll be a commentator, Jimbo observes about his USO wins, "Plan A
didn't work? I had Plan B. You can't be a champion unless you find a
way to win when you're at 70%."

This gives Nadal a very clear target. :)

Are these the same experts who say he's not doping?

Uncle Toni has his work cut out for him. He has to find 10% lying around
somewhere as well as a sensible Plan B from Outer Space.

I know that didn't make much sense...but it's never bad to think about
Barbi Benton's ***s. For a straight guy, that is! :-P

Uncle Toni is a moron. Time for Rafa to dump him and get a real coach.
