French Open champion Rafael Nadal hits practice courts again as he confirms his next tournament

Rafael Nadal return

Rafael Nadal has returned to training following his latest French Open success with the world No 2 preparing for the indoor season.

The Spaniard won a record 13th title at Roland Garros a week ago, beating Novak Djokovic in straight sets in the final to draw level with Roger Federer on 20 Grand Slams.

Next up for the 34-year-old is the Paris Masters, which starts on November 2.

“We live in difficult and different times… 8 days ago I was coming back from Paris and now here I am getting ready for my next tournament. The indoor tournament… in #ParisBercy,” he wrote on Instagram.

Nadal will look to win his first Paris Masters trophy with defending champion and five-time winner Djokovic set to be his biggest rival for the title.
