hopefully clay warrior will lose in the semis in madrid. there is no other way to get him out of there.
he can get almost 3 days of extra rest if somebody can knock him out in the quarters.
I understand the frustration.
Both Fed and Djokovic are taking some needed rest before a schedule packed olympic year while Nadal is running around with knees that should be recovering.
This has always been the case with Nadal and nothing will change it, it's all part of the "Nadal package" deal.
