World number four Rafael Nadal has almost fully recovered from his knee injury as he has passed the latest medical tests on his knees according to Spanish Tennis Federation’s doctor Angel Ruiz-Cotorro.

Ruiz-Cotorro said in an interview, "The tests confirm that Rafa's recovery is proceeding favorably. Medically speaking we are in the final stages and the results were very satisfactory and the return to the circuit is expected to proceed according to plan."

Nadal has already confirmed that he would make his much awaited comeback at the Brazil Open in Sao Paolo in the second week of February. That will be 11-time Grand Slam champion’s first tournament in more than seven months. He has not played a single match since going down at the hands of Lukas Rosol in the second round of Wimbledon in last June.

The Spaniard did not even practice for over four months but he resumed training on the 20th of November last year. He was scheduled to feature at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship in Abu Dhabi and then Qatar ExxonMobil Open in Doha to prepare for the Australian Open but he withdrew from all these events due to a stomach virus.

However, the King of Clay is now almost certain to make his comeback on his favorite surface as he had already started practicing on the clay courts.

Nadal said through a youtube message, "Here you see me on a clay court preparing for the tournament in Sao Paulo. I am very excited about returning to play in Brazil after so many years."

He added, "The last time was in 2005 and I have some fantastic memories. I want to give a huge thanks to the organizers for inviting me to participate in the tournament and I hope to see you there very soon."

The Spanish star captured the Brazil Open title when he appeared in that event for the first time in 2005 at an age of just 18 years.
