King of Clay Will Return Earlier

Odds & News | RJD ( Thu 29th, November 2012 )

While many of his fans were expecting to see Rafael Nadal coming triumphantly on the Australian Open

The Spaniard seems to have decided to return earlier at the event at Qatar ExxonMobil Open 2013. This will allow Nadal to test his knees performance before trying the hard courts of the Aussies and also give a little treat to his faithful fans with the good news. But this move made by the King of clay has a slight of tactical intention. Since the Qatar Open is one of the strongest tournaments that kick off the ATP tour season, it means that all the prominent players will attend it. This will allow an opportunity that he could use to his advantage for testing his competitive performance against great contenders without attracting too much attention by the media.

Returning to a hard court before facing the one at the Aussie Grand Slam will let him know if his knees can stand the effort required to face such great opponents. We must to remember that at the any Grand Slam; the level usually tends to go higher than in the regular tournaments. If Nadal feels like he cannot reach his maximum performance, he can withdraw from the slam without the stare of the media bothering him too much. But if he can make it, this will be the start of an exciting 2013 season.

Nadal 2013 agenda is already full; He will head to Abu Dhabi to play an exhibition on December 28; his first match will be against Andy Murray or Janko Tipsarevic; which guarantee a good competition against a top 10 opponent to test his skills. Then he will make his appearance on Doha for his official first tournament in Qatar ExxonMobil Open 2013, a 250-level event; and this will be paving the road for him while heading at the Australian Open in Melbourne. On February Nadal also will make an unusual appearance in Latin America to play at Acapulco Mexico tournament on clay court, which also will add some sharpness to the King of Clay. Another exhibition in March against Argentinean Juan Martin del Potro, and then returning to the Masters 1000 tournaments at Indian Wells and Miami.

Even with his agenda full even before returning from his injure, and for his well known tradition not to play the week before the Australian Open, Nadal is also highly expected for events like the Heineken Open in Auckland, and the Kooyong exhibition in Melbourne; both would love to have him there; but the Spaniard haven´t confirmed his assistance yet.

Not only the fans are eager to see the Spaniard coming back, but the whole tennis community would love to have him back and his explosive tennis more than ever.
