It improves only the possibility of another injuries I hope his game will be in top level against Djokovic and Roger at Roland Garros
Barcelona is Nadal's favourite tournament (his hometown Mallorca is an island off the coast of Barcelona, thus, that's like the home tournament for him) and Madrid is the biggest tournament in Spain, so he's under the pressure to play there. He had a W/O both in Barcelona and Madrid so it's not really that tiring. It's only because he and Djokovic had a very long battle in SF that cost him the title in Madrid. He has a whole week to recover and with Slam, he has dayoff every other day so it's really no big deal.

Lukasz Kubot reached final in Serbia (lost to Djokovic 3:6,6:7), he was LL, but showed very solid tennis. Now he is playing in FO qualies and beat his first opponent.
I watched the final and was very impressed with Kubot. If he stays consistent, he will jump up the ranking of ATP real fast. Good luck in RG for him.
