It's a long subject to explain here, but basically they're NASA type training machines that let you use them in a free-gravity environment. Nadal is training now with them. There are many articles on it:

Re: Rafael Nadal Injury/Health Update Thread : Nadal out of Abu Dhabi exho

Nadal is finally being clever with his routine.

Brasil Open
Acapulco
Indian Wells
Monte Carlo
Madrid
Rome

Is how he should always start his year. If he has to play Miami then tank it!

On Murray

1. Murray wins Wimbledon 2016 after Djokovic is blue shelled by Querrey. Thanks Querrey!

2. Murray wins Olympic Gold for the second time after Djokovic is blue shelled by Del Potro. Thanks Del Potro!

3. Murray wins US Open 2016 after Djokovic is blue shelled by [pending]. Thanks [pending]!

Does Nadal playing Acapulco make him a Vulture? Not clear on the theory.

No, if you are protecting yourself from injury then fair enough.

If you play any event with a 'weak' draw, then you're a vulture. Weak means "doesn't have all the top players there".

Most likely Nole will defeat Fedull in every corner and then I will remind you of it FOREVER.
