Spanish sports newspaper Marca is reporting that Rafael Nadal will play Miami next season. Nadal, a 3-time finalist there, missed the tournament last year to rest his knees after a title run at Indian Wells.
According to Marca, Nadal will also not return to Vina del Mar, but could still play in Buenos Aires and/or the Acapulco hard court stop. Deals are still being worked out at both events. Rafa is currently signed up for the new tournament in Rio.
Nadal will start the year at the Abu Dhabi exo, then Doha before the Australian Open. Spain is scheduled to travel to Germany for Davis Cup first round following Australia, but it is not known if Nadal will play.
