Bad news for tennis fans (Rafael Nadal)

Not good news for tennis fans.  Rafael Nadal who has not played since June when he lost in five sets to Lukas Rosel at Wimbledon will not play in the Australian Open in January due to a stomach virus.

He had already been forced to pull out of an exhibition in Abu Dhabi that he was scheduled to participate in and would mark his return to tennis action.

Now, today, he has announced he will not be able to play in Australia, the Open taking place January 14 – 27, 2013.  The knee is doing fine but the virus has left him weak and unable to practice and properly prepare.

This is a shame.  Not good news for tennis fans and Rafa.
