Rafa out of Davis Cup, needs two more month of rest
Rafael Nadal will not play the Davis Cup semi-final against the United States as he needs at least two more month to recover.
Nadal has been having treatment for a partial tear of the patella tendon and an inflammation of the Hoffa's fat pad of his left knee.
"I really want to be back competing and enjoying the tennis tour, but I have many years in front of me and my knee needs some rest," Nadal said.
"I will be back when I have no pain and am able to compete without problems."
"I feel better after the meeting with my doctors and happy knowing that the evolution of the past weeks has been positive and surgery has been avoided," Nadal added.
"I will continue to work with the plan my doctors have established to be able to compete as soon as possible in the right conditions.
"I would also like to thanks all for the support I have been receiving."
Get well soon Rafa!!
