    Nadal better not come back till Australian Open. It would not be great to extend his Indoor loss to Federer 0-5.

    Plus DC....not good to lose to Berdych on Indoor Courts.

    Yeah, Rafa has only won 11 straight matches over Berdych (and only 3 of them were on clay).

    I get the impression Rafa will only play the Davis Cup singles if he plays the World Tour Finals. If he doesn't play the World Tour Finals I think he'll play the Davis Cup doubles. I just think it would be strange to play the singles without any match practice before it.

    I hope he returns for the WTF. I wouldn't be optimistic on his chances though

    I am missing Rafa. The draws are a bit of a bore without him. Although, I am happy to see oldies reaching the later rounds (Haas, Radek) but still Djoker versus Rafa would have been a better semi than what we have today.

    Why the hell do they keep putting Flopez in doubles?
    I know theoretically, he has a nice game for it but his record is ****, and they have Granollers at their disposal.
