that schedules not going to happen the ATP and other players would freak out and there would be outcry if Nadal tried to entirely avoid the regulation of the ATP for top ranked players to play the masters events. he might try to do a schedule like that but also play some hard court events and deliberately bow out early possibly

honestly I do expect him to resume a relatively normal schedule with slightly more clay court tournaments. we don't know for certain how concerned they are about the knee permanently or if they're just being really cautious right now and/or just want Rafa to return to tour on good terms and a surface and environment which he feels most comfortable
