It’s official now. Rafael Nadal will miss Spain’s Davis Cup semifinal series against France next weekend.
While some tennis journalists reported that Rafa is facing one month on the sidelines after suffering a small lesion in his patellar tendon, his agent Benito Perez-Barbadillo posted on Twitter that it is too early to speculate about his process of recovery and there is no need to speculate will our champ or not play in Beijing and Shanghai.
Miguel Díaz, president of the Spanish Tennis Federation said:
Now it only remains to wish that Rafa recovers soon, his commitment to our Davis Cup team has been maximum, but unfortunately he will not be able to be with us in Lille, we still have full confidence in the captain and our team.
Pablo Carreño Busta, Roberto Bautista Agut, Albert Ramos, Feliciano López and Marcel Granollers will line up for Spain against France on September 14-16.
Get well soon, Rafa!
