Re: Rafael Nadal Injury/Health Update Thread : Nadal confirmed for Viña del Mar

Well, I add to the thread new info about what has been doing Nadal these days and what will do this week.

Nadal was training last week in the Real Club Esportiu de Barcelona (the tennis club that he belongs) during three days. Then he returned to Mallorca, and he continued practising in the Club de Tenis de Manacor (his first club, the club where he started to play tennis). He posted a pic of a training session where he said that he was trying to practice. Some people were worried about this, because they thought that something was wrong, but it was because of the bad weather that we had in Spain this weekend. The pic was:

(we can see how bad is the clay on the baseline because of the rain)

Then, the most important thing: tomorrow he'll fly to Barcelona to practice again at the Real Club Esportiu de Tenis, but not with people around TOP300 (like the last time). He'll be training with players that have played in the Australian Open and are out of the tournament and he'll practice with maximum intensity, as a simulation of the real level of competition. It is expected to be the last challenge for Rafa before flying to Viña del Mar, something that he'll do on 1-2 of February.
