I agree. Nadal looked tired in the third set against Zeballos in Chile, and in that regard, it makes little sense for him to play doubles too. But it takes him time to settle down & find his momentum, and I suspect he's priority is to find momentum by getting as much practice in as possible. I doubt if he is bothered by losses in these tournaments.  He clearly has an aim to be ready for tournaments that matter to him, in the scheme of things.
