Rafael Nadal Returns

Here is the best news for Rafael Nadal’s fans in more than last four months. The former world number one will get back to the tennis courts next week according to his uncle and coach Toni Nadal.

Giving an interview to the Spanish media on Thursday, Toni said, "Next week we will be back on the courts, that's the plan."

What to talk about taking part at any tournament, Nadal has not hit a tennis ball since losing to Czech Republic’s low ranked player Lukas Rosol in the second round of Wimbledon in June. The Spaniard is suffering again from a recurring knee injury. His condition is called Hoffa’s Syndrome, which is weakening of the tendon.

However, keeping himself away from grueling matches and doing exercises on his knee in the gym have bore fruit. The 26-year-old is almost healthy now but he has to keep working on the strengthening of his tendon.

Toni added, "Things are going well, but the doctor said we had to really strengthen the tendon, and we're doing that.”

Nadal has missed some of the biggest events of this season. The Spaniard first withdrew from the London Olympics, where he had to carry Spain’s flag and defend his Gold Medal. Then he pulled out of the US Open and ATP World Tour Finals. The 11-time Grand Slam will also miss this weekend’s Davis Cup final against Czech Republic in Prague.

However, it is being hoped by Nadal’s camp and his fans that good times are ahead. The Spanish star has plans to make a comeback by taking part in an exhibition event in Abu Dhabi. After that, he will participate in the Qatar ExxonMobil Open in Doha and then the first Grand Slam of the season, Australian Open.

Toni went on to say, "He's adapting his physical therapy and physical training timetable to be at home for the matches."

There are also chances that Nadal might play the Kooyong Claasic as well before the Australian Open.
