“With the 2013 French Open drawing closer, clay-court superstar Rafael Nadal looks like the favorite to win this week’s Madrid Open. But a stacked field of competitors could spell an earlier-than-expected exit for the 11-time Grand Slam champion.”

“Nadal’s comeback has surprised everyone by how great it has been. His fighting spirit was never in doubt but, since his return, he’s played six events, won four and lost in a great final to Djokovic at Monte Carlo. He’s my number one pick for the French Open, ahead of Novak.”

“Less than three weeks later, Nadal pulled out of Wimbledon, citing tendonitis in his knees. He said the pain worsened in his Madrid final loss to Federer before the French Open.”
