An exhibition match on hardcourt?
Strange move by Nadal.
This was scheduled a long time ago, at a time when he expected to play the Australian Open. Not sure what you mean by strange. He can always back out. But if he does play, its not like he has to do much running. These events are always very light-hearted hit-and-miss deals.
