Just wanted to let you know that Fernando will be playing doubles with Lleyton in San Jose!
I read it in a transcript from de SAP Open media conference on January 28. The tournament director was also present. So I guess they would know it if he needed surgery, right?
Q. Is the rumor I hear that in San Jose you plan to play doubles with Fernando Verdasco, is that going to be happening?
LLEYTON HEWITT: We're going to be playing in San Jose. I'm looking forward to it. It's nice to play doubles around the tournaments. And Fernando and I have never played together. So he actually asked me just the week before the Australian Open whether I was interested in playing doubles in San Jose. I took him up on the offer. It's going to be a lot of fun.
It's always nice to play with other quality players as well. And Fernando is a top player obviously. And I believe he won the tournament last year. So he's got good memories of coming back to San Jose.
