Benito Perez Barbadillo told l'Equipe that Rafael Nadal's proposed comeback play - which involves a lot of events on clay - is the right choice for him: "I think that is good to start with a calmer tournament such as Vina, then he could go to San Paolo (which is a little tougher) and then later Acapulco.
