It seems like Rio, Buneos Aires (even though he won it), Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Madrid, and Rome all mean very little to Rafa. IMO he ONLY cares about the FO. The other clay events that used to mean so much to him now don't matter at all. I'm 100% convinced that in 2015 for Rafa it's the FO title or bust!

Stupid thread. That he is not able to win the lesser clay events only shows how pathetic he has become on the surface, not that he doesn't care of them.

Quite possibly this is the case, and he is foxing in the other clay court events.
Not a bad idea though if I was he, just play 1/2 the year and aim at your best Major from hereon in.

He doesn't particularly care for anything outside slams, but he cares about playing himself into form and getting momentum, which isn't going all too well

And when he loses the FO it will be because he was secretly switching his specialty to grass.

Seems he doesn't even care about FO anymore.
He just said he wouldn't want to win it 15 times or something like that.

Did you see his obnoxious celebrations yesterday on Stan's UEs? He desperately wanted to win but he couldn't. Competition has gotten better and better over the years. His one and only trick involving feeding high topspin forehands to opponent's weaker wing is no longer paying dividends.

He's done and dusted.

We will know the answer after the FO. There is a possibility he is tanking, and psychologically trolling his opponents ("oh look, Nadal is shitty, I can win the FO now!"), but I have my doubts.

Anyway, if he is doing it, he's a genious! :D

Nadal only looses when he does not care (or is injured).

Yep, even though he has won those tournaments countless times he suddenly doesn't care. Seems legit. Nadal fans floundering is hilarious to see.
