His Physical Condition Situation
Nadal is looking on the bright side of his chronic left knee tendonitis,
with the Spaniard who has not played in almost two months hoping to make
a comeback for his country's Davis Cup semi-final in September.
"If the knee is well in time for the Davis Cup and
the captain wants me, I will be happy to be there," the world No. 3 told
local media on his island home of Mallorca. "It would be exciting for me
and a great moment to return. If not, then I will have to wait a little
Confident Nadal Will Return To The Tour
Federer has even not considered the possibility that Rafael Nadal might
be finished as a serious rival after the Spaniard confirmed that he is
suffering from a chronic knee complaint. For the Swiss world No. 1, it's
just a matter of time before he begins to face Rafa on the courts again
in a rivalry which now extends to 29 encounters dating to 2004.
"I haven't thought about it, that I might play Rafa less,
because I am convinced he will come back strong sooner or later," said
Federer, guaranteed to hold the ATP top spot through the US Open. "We
have had a great rivalry already, great matches, great fighting spirit,
fair play, different type of matchup him being a lefty, me being the
righty. The way we play is completely different."
Vemic Takes On
Increased Role With Djokovic
Roger Federer contested Cincinnati, the head coach of his team, American
Paul Annacone, took the week off to rest. The same went with Novak
Djokovic's main coach, Marian Vajda, who stayed in Europe after the
Olympics to be with his family. Djokovic was accompanied in Toronto and
Cincinnati by former pro Dusan Vemic, who once lived in Palm Springs.
Vemic is serving both as an assistant coach and as a hitting partner.
Vajda, like Annacone, will return for the US Open.
Williamsí Physical Condition Is A Double Whammy
Williams is fighting a back injury problem which influenced her
Cincinnati semi-final loss to Li Na, with the veteran American who is
already battling an energy-sapping syndrome looking to the positive in
hopes of being 100 per cent for the upcoming US Open.
