Nadal is scheduled to play on tuesday already

If Nadal played the doubles final in Chennai on Sunday, it would mean that he would not arrive until Monday at the earliest, likely Monday evening. Having recently flown to Australia, I can tell you that the flight is a killer. Your body is really out of wack for at least a day or two. It is not the ideal situation to have to play your first round match the very next day against a dangerous oppenent....

well, the tournament ends on saturday, so today was the last day he could play his first round

and, it's not like he was flying from spain to australia...he flew from india - still far, but not nearly as long a trip

Martina Hingis and Dinara Safina played in the finals of Gold Cost and both lost first round matches in Sydney. I'm not sure why top level players would play back to back tournaments right before AO starts. :shrug:

This should be in Nadal's forum. We can't discuss the schedules of a particular player in General Messages. The name says it: General.
