Just IMO, but the new penalty rule about time between points can also affect him.

Referees will dare to use penalty now as it is not a warning then a penalty point anymore but a loss of next first serve.

Most of the time you used to earing referees warning him or Djokovic but never more...

I saw penalties against Bautista in Chennai final.

My spanish badminton double partner (she is a Nadal fan) told me last month, that she is worried about him not to give as much power in rallies if time in betwenn points is strictly limited.

It worried me too about Nole in AO but as he put extra power in his serve, there were now far less rallies in his game.

Nadal didn't win anything until the next clay season after his injury in 2009, it might take him some time until he finds his winning form again. But now he comes back on clay, so it will probably help him to get in form and gain confidence. If he stays injury free, then he is the favourite for every clay tournament he enters. IDK how he will perform off clay. Saying that he will win Wimbledon or USO is nothing more than a bold prediction right now.

Pretty sure Nadal will be content with winning the ATP comeback player of the year award after he wins the title in Vina del Mar.

All I'll say is that tennis misses Nadal.

I think he'll be okay during the clay stretch but it's all chance after that. We saw what happened in Wimbledon last year.

Rafael Nadal will attempt to play next week’s tournament in Vina del Mar, Chile, but he is still experiencing some pain in his knee.

Nadal, who has not played since Wimbledon, told sport.es that the pain still won’t allow him to do certain movements, but he is hoping that it will disappear.

“If the knee stops hurting, I do not see why I should not play at a high level on clay," he said.

Nadal is scheduled to play clay-court tournaments in Vina del Mar, Sao Paulo, and Acapulco. Toni Nadal told the publication that Rafa recently beat Spanish player Tommy Robredo in practice match, and added that his nephew is not far off from a good level.

Nadal is planning on playing doubles in Vina del Mar with his friend Juan Monaco, and then in Sao Paulo with another friend, David Nalbandian.
Playing while still in pain plus planning in some fine doubles action, what can possibly go wrong?

Betfair already adjusted their RG odds slightly after this...
edit: 2.52 Rafa, 2.64 Novak, only yday difference was much bigger.

Default Re: Nadal's Comeback

I doubt he'll do THAT well, like Mimi mentioned, he's not 24 years old anymore and is indeed a grinder so it would be pretty amazing / lucky if he really held up physically well enough to be a threat all season at the remaining slams.

I do hope he comes back strong though! he's obviously a fighter so at the very least we'll have to expect him to make it pretty deep in a few big events. a dream come true for sure for me would be if he came back and won the Roland Garros / Wimbledon duo, but I think the more realistic view point is that he wins neither

it is hard to say either way without having seen Nadal back on court, of course we all hope he is well so tennis will be much more interesting again

It could happen, but one of these times he's not going to be able to bounce back from his knee issues and this could be the time.
