But I have not clear the use of cut.

Please write to me (in spanish if possible)and try to help me, I would
be very pleased with you. Thank's a lot!

Sorry that I can't reply in Spanish. Meanwhile, you are asking for something that cut cannot do. Per POSIX, cut may not reorder fields; if you want to reorder fields, then you have to use a program designed for that, such as awk:

$ echo 'Nadal,Rafa' | awk -F, '{print $2 " " $1}'
Rafa Nadal
