It's not sink or swim. The quote was "The schedule of 2013 won’t change for Nadal who will play the same number of tournaments on hard court of the past years".
I merely think he should play less tournaments on hard than the past years. I'm not saying to not play on hard completely.
Same amount of HC tournaments as past years. Interesting. So he signed up for Acapulco to increase
his overall schedule? That's surprising, but we'll see how it turns out.
