    Absolutely not. He will most likely win Rome again and do what he's done every year, skip Hamburg and rest up the legs for another French Open title. knock on wood.

    what do you expect how can they expect him to play back to back like that ona surface that takes it toll on you, there has to be a small gap even four days rest then i'm sure he would be there in a heart beat.

    Yeah so far his longest match is 1 hr 40 minutes. I say he is capable of playing Hamburg.

    I think he will play, but not for the reason you specified.

    Yeah I think Nadal would really love the slow courts in Hamburg is the reason I think he will play.

    No. However i think he should have Gone to Hamburg and skipped Barcelona because Hamburg is a more prestigious and bigger tournament(MS). However, the flipside is that he may get burnt out too quick.

    He will unless he's 'dizzy' again.

    Highly doubt he will play, he will probably show up and say that he pulled a groin or something in practice

    If he feels any pain what so ever expect him to pull out. He just here to get some more practice and try to keep his clay dominace alive

    I'm sorry, but when does the tournament start? I thought it was today, but maybe I'm wrong?
