Don't think he'll play Nadal's charity match though I hope he does.

Fed's chances to get to no.2 have gone up a lot after yesterday's match but for Fed to outperform Nadal over the next 4 Masters Series too (Miami, MC, Madrid, Rome) is quite an ask. If Fed gets very close I think Rafa will play Madrid as even if he doesn't like it he should reach the semis/final there. He needs to rack up the clay points this year -I doubt Nole will be as good as last year which helps Rafa's chances. Fed on the other hand can be upset early.
Please excuse the misunderstanding, I was comparing Halle, to last year, Mr Ash. Isner defending his title and Raonic are both playing in Newport. Isner is going to be a key player this year (he already is). And match play is pretty good practice...but again, it's just a hunch.
