Two more news about Nadal:
-> In Viña del Mar, he will play doubles with one of his greatests friends, Juan 'Pico' Monaco:
(this picture was taken last year when 'Pico' travelled to Mallorca to visit Rafa and stay with him some days... they trained and swam together)
Nadal will play his doubles match on Tuesday 5th of February, so he will play in doubles before than in singles
. It can help Nadal to get his best level sooner, to practice more on clay and to warm-up for the defence of the Indian Wells doubles title, which was won by Rafael Nadal and Marc López.
-> The organization has scheduled Nadal debut: 6th of February at 22:00 CET (18:00 in Chile)
. If he wins, the next match is scheduled by the organization on Friday 8th of February, time to be confirmed. And if he wins this match too he'll play semifinals on Saturday and maybe the final on Sunday. So, he'll start in R16.
