"I'm going to be hands-on whenever I'm home".
"I'll run tennis camps, shoot hoops, cook, clean up ... whatever is needed".

After dodging two match points against Lucas Pouille in the first round of the China Open, Nadal displayed devastating form (arguably his best off clay since the 2014 Australian Open) the rest of the week, culminating with a 6-2, 6-1 victory over Nick Kyrgios in the final.
