Bad omen: From these photos, taken during a practice session in Melbourne, Rafael Nadal's troublesome knees don't look to be completely healed yet, even though the incredibly hulking Spaniard looks healthy in every other way.

Could this explain the World No. 2's devastating loss at the Chennai Open last weekend, or is this just a preventative tape job?
