    Just read this article (Matt Cronin) and according to Uncle Tony, "his nephew will spend this weekend watching the Davis Cup final from home, and then get back on court"

    Also "plans for Nadal to return at the Abu Dhabi exhibition and the end of this year, and then play in Doha at the start of 2013 before heading to Australia"

    FYI: Abu Dhabi is (Dec 27-29) this year...

    I think Rafa is going to enjoy watching the doubles davis cup rubber in a few hours - as Rosol is playing for the Czech team.

    Yeah ok, we've heard that before. I'll believe it when I see some dude wasting 5 minutes to arrange his water bottles so that they align with the stars.

    Do you really believe that THE Czechs are going to allow Ivo minar and Rosol to take over as the doubles team ?

    I think that Rafa may already be practising behind closed doors you know. There is no way of knowing, is there?

    Yeah that sucks that Spain didn't get the doubles round...but at least this way, their Czech Singles players should be more worn out (emotionally and physically). I think Ferrer will win but it will all bank on Almagro

    Good to see him back. I hope he might play in Auckland next year for some match practice. I'd be keen to see him live.

    It's good now that 2012 is finally over. In step with the completion of this year's world tour finals, Rafa's calendar-year ban seems to have ended. I hope that he had a fantastic vacation and learned his lesson that he is not bigger than the sport.
