    Nice photos! I thought that this year’s wimbledon was very exciting and was happy to see Rafael Nadal take home his second title. But you have wonder if his injuries are going to catch up to him. I’m worried for how his career is going to pan out because of the injury problems considering it could be an unbelievable career rather than just very good. Also, you think you could check out my blog? I really want to know what your opinion is on my thoughts. http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2010/07/05/nadals-last-chance/

      Very nice photos.

      Chris: I believe Nadal has been changing his playing scheme. If you look at the ATP-rankings, he played 18 tournaments, whilst Federer played 20 and for example Soderling (and others) played 25. He skipped Barcelona, and in the nexed period he won’t play David Cup. So I think he has learned how to deal with his knee injuries, and having found a new treatment that seems to have worked well for one knee (he’ll get treatment on the other one the next weeks), I expect him to be around for a long, long time to come.

    YAY for the abridge photo version! That’s my favo[u]rite version of all things.

    That 2nd photog of them is great, the pair of ‘em look quite adorable. Also Serena looks quite AMAZING herself (althoughit looks like a cat scratched off the sequins at the bottom of the dress.)

    agree with you! I noticed that he didn’t try to catch “every” ball recently when playing. I think that will help a lot to recover his knees. Also, he is getteing older(of course he is still quite young now), so that will be good for him to change his strategy from now, if he hopes his tennis career could last much longer.
