Rafael Nadal Discusses Miami Withdrawal

Sony Ericsson Open, Miami, United States: The second of the ATP Masters 1000 Series has not gone to plan so far for Rafael Nadal, after withdrawing yesterday before his semi-final encounter against Andy Murray.  The world No.2 explained he was experiencing difficulties with his knee and would be unable to play.  With a busy clay court season looming nearby, it is most likely the sensible decision by the Spaniard, but as always, the Grand Slam champion was more concerned about letting down his fans and was extremely apologetic in his official interview and during his own personal apology which he posted on Facebook.
