Apparently Rafa has signed a two-year contract to play in Stuttgart in 2007 and 2008.
There's also speculation about Rafa's appearance in Thailand:
ATP THAILAND OPEN
Organisers confirm star attraction
Several of the world's top tennis players will compete in September's ATP Thailand Open in Bangkok, according to BEC Tero Entertainment managing director Brian Marcar. ''I can confirm there will be leading players in the tournament and one will be one of top two players at the moment,'' he said.
Swiss world number one Roger Federer played in the 2004-2005 event and there is speculation that this time the organisers will be trying to get world No 2, Rafael Nadal from Spain.
''The appearance fee for the top player would be between 16-20 million baht, the same as we paid Roger Federer two years ago,'' he said.
Attendances were down at last year's tournament, partly because few of the top players were in action.
The US$550,000 event will be held at Impact Arena, Muang Thong Thani from September 24-30.
