Per an announcement tweeted by Rafa today (September 3rd), he will be out of competition for two more months. He has a “partial tear of the patella tendon at the distal pole of the patella plus an inflammation of the Hoffa’s fat pad of his left knee”. Per the statement, Rafa is happy that he has avoided surgery and that his condition continues to improve. He “will be back when I have no pain and able to compete with guarantee”.
