I know Nadal is the "clay king" but you think he wouldn't even be bothered in the slightest by having to possibly play Murray, Federer and Djokovic back to back? I don't care if he's the best on clay, nobody can be guaranteed of victory when playing against the top 3 in consecutive rounds.

Not to mention he might not be coming back at full strength.
