nothing very clear imo : still now the last words we heard from Toni would be that he would play hardcourt tournaments as much as before, and then so far what I can see is only an adding of tournaments. Besides, Nadal's entourage's communication is used to talking a lot for very little in reality.
And the announcement that he would play Acapulco was made in the end of last year, and that he would play Vina and Sao Paulo very few weeks ago.
