Nadal back in training

MADRID, July 21 – Spanish tennis ace Rafael Nadal, who resumed training on Monday after being sidelines with tendinitis in both his knees for nearly two months, says the rest of the season would be "difficult" for him.RAFA_NADAL"Even if I return at 100 percent, you have to be realistic, the rest of the season is going to be difficult because after stopping for one month, almost two, you lose the rhythm of the competition," the 23-year-old told Spanish media in Mallorca.

"I have still one advantage over (Roger) Federer in that I am only 23 years old," added Nadal, who lost his French Open and Wimbledon titles, as well as his world number one spot, in a summer of injury misery.

Switzerland’s Federer, 27, won both the French Open and Wimbledon and regained the number one ranking held by Nadal during the Spaniard’s absence.

Nadal has not played since being upset by Robin Soderling in the fourth round at the French Open in May. It was his first defeat at Roland Garros where he had been the four-time champion.

The injury forced him to pull out of Wimbledon two days before it started.

Nadal intends to return to return to competitive play at the Montreal Masters, where he is the defending champion, which gets underway on August 8.

    Wambugu is right as long as the middle class remains quiet and divided along tribal lines Kenya cannot go anywhere

    Your comment was Ok but for the last sentence. White Americans still overwhelmingly voted for their man, Romney. The money class also wanted Romney.

    Social change can only come from the middle class in a society as you point out. The poor in Kenya will always be poor, the rich will always be rich. It is only the middle class who can move to being poor or rich, therefore the political and economical state of the country will usually only affect this class of people only. But we see is they are too busy taking care of there mitumba cars, ignored because they are always taxed highly on there basics. Interestingly even within walala heri, there is a well developed social apartheid system…those who live in eastlands and others in westlands.
