IMO Rafa shouldn't have played in IW. He did well in those 3 clay tournaments, why not rest for a month before the long and arduous clay season in Europe + Wimbledon? He should have stayed away from the hard courts until August.
Rafa said in the presser they thought a month off before the clay court season would have been too long, he wants to play, he needs match play, he's saying it all the time. He lives to compete, he was suffering watching others on TV.
But now he should defo skip Miami and get some good rest before the looooong clay court ordeal. I'll be super
if the Nadal men would gather in Miami again and make Rafa play. Or if he's idiot enough to play.
