A big part of Nadal's problem at the WTF, outside of it being his worst surface to begin with, is that he never has enough gas left in the tank after a grueling season with his playing style, which shouldn't be a problem this time. It's also very likely that this will be the last year in which he will have a shot of taking the title.

With the current state of the tour his competition will be the same as last year, when he only had Djokovic to fear, who is looking dodgier than ever as of late. So, I suspect he will take it easy with the wrist outside of holding a fishing rod, play Beijing, Shanghai, Valencia and maybe Paris, after which he will be sufficiently warmed up while still being rested enough to launch his final offensive on the WTF.

Indoor season should be prioritized over Asia for sure. If necessary, skip Asia and play 3-4 indoor tournaments as prep for London.

Not really possible without overplaying (playing three indoor events back to back).

There is no doubt that the WTF is Nadal's biggest goal and it has been for a couple of years. Nadal has as much trouble adapting his game for the WTF as Federer does adapting his backhand for Rafa's forehand. Fast indoor courts are Rafa's biggest weakness and the WTF is the ultimate indoor event. Toni and Rafa have been lobbying to have the WTF surface rotated away from indoor hard make the task easier but if that were to happen the title wouldn't mean as much.

Who cares about WTF ...except fedtards who always try to blame on everything.
Nadal should not take them serously.

WTF is like a charity event at the end of the year....only for ATP to make money....the fact that it happens only in outdated surface which is indoors, indicates it should be removed from mandatory list.

Nadal giving preference over US OPen is just ridiculous.

Moonballer has no business on indoor HC. Even though dull managed to beat an exausted Olderer for the first time in his career last year, Djokovic is still much more superior than him.

Strong era spartan always out of gas at the end of the season while weak era mugs were always in top form?
Not really, GOAT physical entity Federer is the only one who is never tired or injured, despite playing it a hundred years in a row.
