Once again Rafa will be playing Doubles as well as Singles for the second consecutive tournament in Miami. This time he will partner Marcel Granollers.
One of the reasons Rafa gave for the Doubles entry was the upcoming Olympic Games in the Summer.
“It’s true that I hardly ever play doubles in Miami, but taking into consideration that there is the Davis Cup and, above all, the Olympics this year it excites me to go there and be competitive, both as a pair and individually,” Nadal told Spanish news agency Efe.
This follows Rafa’s success in the Doubles in Indian Wells where he won the Title for a second time along with fellow Spaniard Marc Lopez.
