he will be careful in 2013 but again will mess up 2014.......he will never learn.......if he doesn't skip barcelona, doubles and other unnecessary participations, he will lose roland garros next year.......

the way i see it, this is the best schedule to stay injury free for all four slams,

1. doha
2. aus open
3. indian wells
4. montecaro
5. madrid
6. rome
7. french open 
8. wimbledon
9. toronto
10. us open

just singles everywhere........that's it.......

i demand french open to be renamed RAFAEL GARROS

It's chronic.
It's the style.
It will all be over soon, one way or the other. :)

I guess the burning question is, will he be able to play at a very high level with less practice and match play? :confused1:

what practice did he have for australian open 2012?

i never believed that practice and feel of things is the reason for overplaying........he just loves the sport too much that he can't stop from playing all formats every other week........he will be just as fine as before with less match play and increased fitness routines........

who says there will be "less practice".
 
you can achieve good results with increased practice on clay and less turnament activity on hard courts if your name is nadal.
 
he just has to plan to lose early on the required hard court events and practice more year around on clay.
 
and of course increase work on the fitness front to maintain his edge.

I think Rafa just needs to recover from playing a lot of tennis both physically and mentally.  In other words; he kind of burnt out!  He will be back 2013 or even before that; for the big year end tournament for the million dollar round robin.
