Quite an interesting read. Loose summary:

Djokovic has the potential to battle Federer for the #1 rank in the future.

He could replace Nadal at #2 next year.

Djokovic, Murray have the best chances of getting to the top along with
Nadal.

Nadal had good doctors and his injuries do not worry Toni.

Indoor surfaces are terrible (for Nadal's game and health) and he is
amazed that the ATP hasn't done anything about getting rid of them.

I don't think he mentions indoor surfaces, but he does complain about
hard courts. Interestingly, he sounds a lot like Nadal himself when he
gripes that instead of having fewer tournaments on these surfaces, the
ATP is having more. I think that belies his claim about not being
worried about Nadal's health, since his chief objection to hard courts
is not that Nadal plays worse on them, but that they beat him up.

"superficies como las del Masters Series Madrid" could be interpreted as
a HC or a fast indoor surface, I suppose.

Since Nadal is heading to Paris after Madrid, I took it to mean indoor
surfaces.

"perjudica nuestro juego, pero tambin la salud" - damages our game and
health. Toni seems to think it hurts Nadal's game which has to mean that
Nadal plays worse on this surface (in comparison to the baseline of
clay, I am sure).

Nadal, when he had similar gripes, has mentioned Toni as his influence.
No surprises there. Nadal is very loyal.

Dave Hazelwood has been saying all these things for some time now.

The guy deserves some credit for his remarkable insight.

The exception of course is that the ATP change all the courts for Rafa
! What a stupid ***ing idea ! Nobody else has a problem. If Rafa
wants to run around like a***aroach and injure himself that's his
business. Alternatively, he can learn to play proper tennis like all
the other guys.

Murray has only recently had a few decent wins and pushed Nadal a bit
during their match (On Nadal's worse surface)...  let's see him
actually win some tournaments again before declaring him a top
contender again (if he ever was one to start with).

Part of it is the upcoming 2009 tournament schedule. I believe Toni
thinks it is unfair to clay court specialists - more unfair than the
current schedule which he views as unfair to them.

More likely hard courts generally - the ATP's new schedule drops a
couple of clay events in favor of hard, IIRC, and I think Nadal has
complaiend about hard courts elsewhere. Most indoor courts are hard now,
anyway, not carpet.

Thing is, even though it's self-serving, Nadal is right: the hard courts
are harder on the players generally.
