Rafael Nadal reveals comeback plans and gives injury update
Rafael Nadal says he hopes to be back to help Spain in the Davis Cup next week, but hasn’t confirmed he will be.
Nadal hasn’t played since the Australian Open, and is expected to play in Monte Carlo in April.
He, though, says that he could be back a little earlier than that – if he’s right physically.
“The Davis Cup is an important competition, not a preparation for another thing,” Nadal told 1B3 TV.
“Let’s see how it goes day after day, if I will be doing well tennis-wise and physically, I will try to help the team to win the tie.”
“The wish is to return, obviously being cautious. I had a complicated few months, unexpected things happened, I needed to be patient, take a rest without doing anything, but now I feel that I am working at a good level and trying to increase it each passing day. I am motivated to start again.”
