From what I've read, I believe Rafa is putting his health and physical fitness above ranking points and fines... I think he's got those priorities right, personally.

Wtf!?

The AO tournament organizers should be pissed.
I'm pretty sure tournament directors know the difference between practice and match play. ..Even I know that, and I haven't been following tennis all that long.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

Toni Nadal said on an interview in SER Deporte Baleares (a radio local program of the Balear Islands) that Nadal can return to competition before Acapulco, including the possibility of playing on Europe.

I find it very difficult, I think that he'll return on a clay tournament in South America, not on a hard court tournament. In addition, he started to practice on clay this week (this Monday). It seems strange, but Toni said it.

It is time we faced the facts. Nadal is now a full time clay courter.

The following could be a realistic 2013 schedule for Rafa..

Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Madrid, Rome, French Open, Bastaad or Stuttgart, Hamburg, Gstaad or Umag, and Kitzbuhel. He'd play 13 events all on clay, I think it's what he's truly become, a full-time clay court player (plus maybe Davis Cup too if it's on clay as well).

I'm a Nadal Hater , but this schedule is some delicious shit i like it. He'll still gain a lot of points ... 2000 from RG , 3x1000 MC,Madrid,Rome, he can have up to 7250 points ! If he wins them all ! Still TOP 4 easily.

Agreed but when he will play the slams? He needs to play in other courts to get used to it and if he will play only clay it will hurt him in my eyes so all clay = little chance for other slams
