Rafael Nadal has given an update on his fitness ahead of the Paris Masters.
The Spaniard has not played since retiring with injury in his US Open semi-final against Juan Martin del Potro, but will return to action against either Fernando Verdasco or Jeremy Chardy on Wednesday.
And, whilst admitting he can’t wait to be back, he admits he has had to take his recovery slowly.
“I stopped for a while after the US Open so then I started to practice slow step by step”, said Nadal.

“Here I am. Happy to be here. And is nothing new for me. Something that happened in my career a couple of times.
“So more or less we know the process and we know the thing that works good to us, things that not works good.
“And we try to do our way with calm and being staying positive every day.
“Knowing that the things are not changing very quick in this type of injuries.
“I am having better feelings on court. I am practising a little bit more every day.
“This city so special for me. That’s little bit more motivation to be here.”
