He's doing exactly the same as he did last year. Boodles is the perfect preparation: lovely courts, top players, a more relaxed situation to prepare well.

In fact, I think The Boodles has a better field than any other 250 tournament played on grass:

Novak Djokovic
Andy Murray
Janko Tipsarevic
Juan Martin Del Potro
John Isner
Nicolas Almagro
Gilles Simon
Stanislas Wawrinka
Alexandr Dolgopolov
Fernando Verdasco
Marin Cilic
Ernests Gulbis

With Nadal and Federer failing so miserably, Nole could do something good here.

I think tune up is overrated. What did Nadal tune by playing two matches on Halle grass? And Nole's best tune-up result was in Queens 2008, followed by his worst Wimbledon ever. F the tuneups
