I don't have high expectations for him during the clay swings this year, I have a feeling if his knees and performance don't improve by RG then he has a good chance in losing to Djokovic, Murray, Federer and even Ferrer in the quarters.
3,5 months! And another week. That's the time between now and RG. Nadal will likely play 6-7 clay tournaments before than and possibly IW and Miami too. He has PLENTY of time to get in shape, even if it truly is the case that he isn't now (which I expect he is). So please people - stop worrying. Rafa will be fine and - safe for whichever Nole he comes across - be the king of clay yet again.
