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”.

Announcement in Spanish and English.

I’m heading to NY for a week starting Wednesday. So the infrequent updates could get even more less frequent. Don’t forget that Inés and genny_ss are posting more frequent updates to Facebook.

Thanks so much to Inés and Genny_ss for posting updates to Facebook while I was gone - that’s where I’m pulling a lot of these links. If you follow on Facebook, this will mainly be repeats for you.

Rafa’s been a bit busy posting updates to Facebook. If you haven’t seen them by now: first, what’s wrong with you? Second, go check them out.

(This is as much as I could gather before I was in serious danger of falling asleep at my keyboard. Night!)
