Tennis: It has been learnt that world number four Rafael Nadal suddenly went to his doctor Mikel Sánchez in the USP La Esperanza clinic in Vitoria to have a check up of his knees last week.

It is not yet known what did the doctors say about the condition of his knees but the only thing to worry for Nadal’s fans is that he had got his knees checked up after the Indian Wells Masters.

Nadal had gone to the doctor with his father and Luis Cotorro straight after winning the BNP Paribas Open. Doctors had said that the condition of his knees was fine, so what was the sudden need have this non-routine check up?

Fans of the Spanish star desperately want to see him in action during the European clay court swing with 100 percent fitness. They missed him a lot when he stayed away from the ATP World Tour for seven consecutive months, missing some of the biggest events like London Olympics, US Open, ATP World Tour Finals and Australian Open.

Nadal made a successful comeback on the clay courts of South America in February, winning two tournaments and being the runner-up at one. Real test of his knee came on the hard courts of Indian Wells and he passed it with brilliance as he captured the title by downing three of the top 10 players including Roger Federer.

It is hoped that Nadal went to doctor to just have one last check up before the start of European clay court swing and there was nothing serious. He will be taking part in the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters from April 14, where he is an eight-time defending champion.

The Spaniard needs to be fully fit during the clay season as he has to defend a mountain of points during those events. He gathered 4,590 during the clay season last year, winning in Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Rome and Paris. His only below par performance came on the blue clay courts of the Madrid Masters.
