I don't think so but he certainly could. Not been on form lately but where better to get back on track than his own countries biggest event.

I'd like to see him do well in Stockholm tho. If that damn draw would ever be published, I could see what hes doing.

Maybe:

Tursunov 2 nd round, Berdych 3rd, Blake Qtr Final, Roddick Semi-final and Federer final. That would really tell us how good Nadal is on an indoor hardcourt.



I expect Nadal will have a much easier draw

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

Re: Will Nadal defend his title in Madrid?

Not sure but I really hope theres another Federer-Nadal final.

I'd like to see players like Murray, Gasquet and Baghdatis do well at Madrid.

Baghdatis especially as doing well at Madrid could really consolidate his claim to qualify for the Tennis Masters Cup.

Agree about Murray. He is good indoors so he should be able to pick up some decent points at Madrid and Paris.

Re: Will Nadal defend his title in Madrid?

How much I'd love to see him manage to defend his title, I think this one will be for Rogelio...

(and I hope the crowd manages to BEHAVE, btw...)
