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

well im not a rafa fan or anything close but i think fed fans owe a lot to rafa for Motivating fed, Imagine how boring it would have been for fed without rafa? things like that just bust his energy

and of course a lot of rafa fans are my friends and i know they miss him and want him to come back and it will make them happy, i know i could have felt the same if fed would have been missing for such a long time.

i still think he looks thinner, or maybe its bc he cut his hair?

Some more photos from today (Nadal's got the new Babolat logo on his racquets...):









Seems promising. Some reports he may still play Chile, though I would think playing consecutive weeks might not be what he wants. Chile entrance list closes this week so we'll find out soon enough. Fact that he's back practicing with serious players rather than Toni/Moya/his friends is a good sign that he must be returning to normal practice!

I'm impressed with your powers of observation. I can't see a logo. But I take your word for it.

Don't you think he'd consider asking for a WC to Chile rather than enter normally? Just a guess on my part, but it would perhaps be the cautious thing to do. Avoid further brouhaha if he should have to cancel later.

He will be back but not win another slam. I just don't see it, he will never be the same.

Maybe one more RG if he plays Seppi or Tomic in the final.

Who knows how he'll be but I doubt he's forgotten how to play. Many players come back from more serious injuries than tendinitis. Monfils was out most of last year with a knee injury and is playing well now. Del Po getting back to slam form. Nadal won't bother if he doesn't think he can contend for slams and you can be sure he will do whatever he has to to be competitive for at least Roland Garros and Wimbledon.

I think by Monte Carlo/Rome we should be able to assess what his chances are.

haha Mateya the poor desperate Rafa hater claiming he won't win a slam. you'll never see what? what do you see? have you seen the future? have you seen him play one match on tour since being gone? have you been to his practices? get a life man, Nadal may or may not be in good form upon returning but certainly there is no reason to think more one way or another at this point. I think he'll certainly win another RG assuming his knee truly is healed, he's had pretty long breaks before and he's obviously not been ignoring tennis and not playing at all. the funny thing is, of any player you can imagine that would take a big break from tennis and then come back, Nadal is one of the ones you most could see getting his form back quickly on clay. he works hard and certainly concentrates so I don't see getting confidence/mojo back being a problem. it's not like he's a Soderling who for a brief period of his career hit a great level and is doubted to ever return to that if he gets healthy again. Nadal knows he can beat the best and if he's healthy again he will

I almost do agree with Corey Feldman though, keep hearing a lot of news about nothing, not much to discuss about Nadal until he actually is playing on tour again, gets old and lame to keep discussing his form or lackof when no one knows what it is. all that really matters is that the knee appears to have healed, nothing else for weeks has been newsworthy

The only way he can play Santiago is if he asks for a WC, he wasn't on the EL.
