Expect him to go on a tear next year like someone having been transfused with a fresh blood and brand new knees. Good to have you back champ...The tour die a little every day without you.

Some footage of Nadal practicing yesterday -- he's increased the intensity, says the knee feels good and he hopes to be in best conditions for Acapulco/IW/Miami. Confirmed plans for Abu Dhabi barring some unforeseen setback. Exciting to see him back on court soon.

Practicing the serve with both Toni and second coach Roig watching...

great to see him back with serious practicing and it's nice that he's finally beyond just doing all of that physio regrouping and testing of the knees day after day!

has got almost a month to get into shape and start the 2013 season exciting prospect! it would be awesome if he truly was back to his best by South America // Indian Wells time too

go Rafa!

I can hardly understand what they are talking about, even though my Spanish is pretty solid.

I miss my tennis comedy show. Bring back the jumping up and down stupidly, the scowling, the cheating, the complaining, the stalling and the ass picking.

complaining and moving slowly is not cheating whatsoever, although I imagine you're just like trolling to be a jerk

up to umpires to take more action, not up to a player to automatically play at the rate you as a fan expect him to

Up to a player to play at the rate required by the rules, I would have thought. Unless there is a good reason not to do so, like a lot of noise or something similar.

Rafa was cheating in every way possible in the fifth set against Rosol but, like me, Rosol was amused by the whole comedy. What a hoot!

stalling may not be cheating, but it is gamesmanships.
And stalling beyond the maximum seconds between points means he broke the rule every single time.

But I agree, when it comes to Nadal, the officials chose never to impose the rule.
