June 11, 2012; Paris, FRANCE; Rafeal Nadal (ESP) returns a shot against Novak Djokovic (SRB) in the men's singles finals of the 2012 French Open at Roland Garros.  Nadal won 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 7-5. Mandatory Credit: Susan Mullane-US PRESSWIRERafael Nadal, one of the greatest tennis players in the world, has announced on Twitter that he will miss this year's US Open.


Nadal missed the Olympics with tendinitis in his knee, which also caused him to pull out of the Rogers Cup and the Cincinnati Masters. It's likely that the same knee injury is the reason he's missing the US Open as well.

Hopefully this gives Nadal the rest that he needs to recover, because the game just isn't the same without him. Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, and others are putting together some outstanding tennis tournaments, but Nadal is definitely among the greatest ever, and it's a shame whenever he misses a tournament.

It sucks, but this isn't the first time Nadal has had knee problems. It's a byproduct of his aggressive, relentless playing style. It takes a huge toll on his body.

actually he has knee related disease from a very young age... doctors say that its a miracle that he can walk let alone play an aggressive game like tennis....
