The Mallorcan maestro, Rafael Nadal, has succumbed to the relentless physical pressures of playing at the very highest level of the game. For now. Even as his knee, which took a beating in his epic Wimbledon final against R-Fed, began to mend, he called it quits today with a wrist injury on the court at the Cincinnati Masters tournament, down a set and 1-4 to Juan Monaco. Racqonteur hopes Rafael will heal in time to seriously compete in Flushing Meadows, which starts main draw matches in just 12 days!
