Nadal Should Skip Monte-Carlo

It's not a mandatory event and Nadal will only have 11 days off before he starts playing his grueling schedule. I don't mind a Barcelona, Rome, and Madrid clay season. Not that overwhelming compared to having to play 3 weeks straight otherwise. The conditions are so slow in Monte-Carlo that it takes a lot out of the players I feel to win this event. But what he should do and what he does is 2 different things unfortunately.

Re: Nadal Should Skip Monte-Carlo

Nadal won't skip Montecarlo. MC is one of his favourite tournaments of the season, just like RG, Barna or Wimbly, for example.

Worked good for Federer. And I blame the knee injury for not doing well in RG. Not the altitude.
