Yes the weather is better, bizarrely it is even a little warm today. Not that my work was good, totally crazy. But with Nadal, yes I think he is being sensible and it will be to his benefit for the whole season. I dont know how many times I have watched him post Wimbledon and it is clear that he is exhausted and over tennised. This should ensure that he also has a far fairer crack at winning the US Open and the Masters than has been the case historically!!!!
