Date:

It was a tough day for Rafa Nadal at the Australian Open. The Balearic tennis player was eliminated after losing in the second round to Mackenzie McDonald (6-4, 6-4, 7-5).

After a good first set by the American (6-4) Rafa seemed to be in a position to turn the game around in the second… until some physical problem set off all the alarms.

At 4-3 and 30-15 down, the reigning champion ran towards a tight ball from his rival when he experienced a hole that forced him to stop.

After bending over with obvious signs of pain, he had to be treatedfirst by the physio on the track and then in the locker room, in the despair of his box, where his wife Mery could not hold back her tears.

});

Behind, Nadal stayed on the court, still visibly limited in movement. Despite standing and displaying his usual dignity, Physical problems ended up costing him his hotly contested third set.
