Nadal has no time to play Cincinnati, US Open, Rotterdam, Acapulco, Miami, but you can tell that if Rojahh calls tomorrow and invites him to play another show-off charity match at the world’s end, he’ll pack his bags and rush there immediately.

You get what you deserve.
Yeah, too much camaraderie and 'brohood' is kinda cringe

Lol. Imagine hating Federer so much you start hating your favorite Nadal just because he doesn't also hate Federer.

-Off tour for 6 months
-Plays worst Rome ever as his only warm-up
-Still wins RG in straight sets

Checks out.
I never really brought into all the hysteria of RG 2020 and Novak being the favorite but I was hopeful. I’m NEVER counting Rafa out again unless he goes out in Chatrier in a wheelchair. Even then, I have my doubts.

Are you saying he deserves to lose to Ivashka because he played a charity match with Roger 14 months ago?

1st set against Rublev was one of the worst Nadal's ever played on clay and he came storming back in the 2nd.

Rublev was solid enough to weather the storm. We'll see what Ivashka is made of here.

Purely based on his ranking I would be really really shocked to see Ivashka winning even against the worst Nadal ever. If he does, then it's official Karatsev broke the matrix

Yeah, I should sit quietly and be praising Nadal when this crap is all his fault. He thought he can play 5 matches in half a year and then come out blazing. Probably another advice from his best friend.
-Skips Cincy/USO to ensure he'll be 100% for RG, and wins it like planned
-Has a good showing in Paris & London
-Tweaks back before Australia, plays through it, skips Acapulco & Miami to recover for clay
-Doesn't care anymore?

Irrelevant. Ivashka is winning this set. His level is too high for Nadal to deal with.
It was absolutely not the case. Nadal's level was so down in that set, Ivashka did absolutely nothing above average. Nadal's ballstriking and serve were totally off, my friend
