Suggest Rafa's schedule for 2011?!!

Here is the ideal schedule from my opinion:
  • Doha 250 3-Jan
  • Australian Open 17-Jan
  • Dubai 500 21-Feb
  • Davis cup* 4-Mar
  • Indian wells 1000 7-Mar
  • Miami 1000 21-Mar
  • Monte-Carlo 1000 11-Apr
  • Barcelona 500 18-Apr
  • Madrid 1000 2-May
  • Rome 1000 9-May
  • Roland Garros 23-May
  • Queen's 250 6-Jun
  • Wimbledon 20-Jun
  • Davis Cup* 8-Jul
  • Montreal 1000 8-Aug
  • Cincinnati 1000 15-Aug
  • Us Open 29-Aug
  • Davis Cup* 16-Sep
  • Tokyo/Beijing 500 3-Oct
  • Shanghai 1000 10-Oct
  • Paris 1000 7-Nov
  • WTF 20-Nov
  • Davis Cup 2-Dec

*Not necessary to play Davis cup if Rafa feels tired.

What about your suggestions?

Re: Suggest Rafa's schedule for 2011?!!

Leave February alone.. he don't need that

4 Slams, 9 Masters 1000 events (TO BE READY FOR THEM,NOT LIKE THIS SHANGHAI), Doha, Barcelona, Queens (he allready said that he will be there,and every time that happen he played in Wimbledon final - Queens ia a unique and great torunament), Tokio, WTF... go home and prepare for Australian Open 2012

Re: Suggest Rafa's schedule for 2011?!!

I'm done second-guessing Rafa. I really didn't want him to play the Asian fall swing but now I'm so glad he went even though he wasn't successful in Shanghai. Seeing how fans were so thrilled to see Rafa made it worth it.

I think it will be everything in the opening post, minus Barcelona. That clay court schedule seemed to work well for him this year.

Re: Suggest Rafa's schedule for 2011?!!

Whatever your thoughts about the Madrid tournament, it would be a pity if the home fans didn't get to see him defend his title there. So in my opinion it's not a question of Barcelona vs. Madrid...it's more of a question of whether to play both or only the Masters 1000 tournament. Because let's face it, even though the court and altitude in Madrid may not be perfect for him, he is still likely to steamroll all of his opponents.

Re: Suggest Rafa's schedule for 2011?!!

Its far from perfect for him in Madrid.. as a Spanish best tennis player in history (and will be for good) don't think he owns them anything. He will play Barca for sure and I really looking forward to 6th title in that great tournament. After that I really don't care what he will do in bloody Madrid,I want titles in Monte Carlo, Barca, Rome and French Open

But that is still far to go,Rafa just need's 4 tournaments before clay. Anything more then Doha, Melbourne, Indian Wells and Miami will be big mistake

Agreed, so I'm glad not to see Rotterdam on the list. But I think he will still play Dubai where the top players are being offered a lot of $$$ (not that he is playing for the money - more to keep fans and sponsors happy, I guess). Also his participation in DC is ok if he feels up for it (especially if it is in Spain on clay) but would not be surprised if he opts to skip the first round again.
