Tennis: Former world no.1 and 12-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal has reached Montreal to feature in the Rogers Cup Masters Tennis tournament which is starting in Montreal on Monday.

The 8-time French Open champion posted a photo on his Facebook account (a social networking website) in which he is seen sitting with his luggage, a Tennis bag and a suitcase.

Nadal posted the photo account 9 pm Canada time and wrote a caption with the photo in Spanish, "Recogiendo las maletas en el Aeropuerto de Montreal", which means, "Picking up the suitcases at the Airport in Montreal".

The Spaniard is all set to play his first competitive tournament since losing the 1st round of 2013 Wimbledon Championship over a month ago. Nadal had lost to Belgium's Steve Darcis in straight sets.

Before that Nadal had a fantastic year and he had reached the finals of 9 straight tournaments that he played first in the year 2013. He won 7 of those 9 tournaments, including the French Open, which he won 8th time, Indian Wells Masters, Rome Masters and Madrid Masters. He was denied a 9th straight Monte Carlo title by world no.1 Novak Djokovic in the final.

Nadal arrives in Montreal, having won the event twice before, in 2005 and 2008. The latter one was in Toronto so he has won it only once in Montreal, when he defeated one of the greatest players of all-time, 35-year-old Andre Agassi in 3 sets final in 2005.

The 26-year-old Mallorcan would be looking to win his 4th ATP Masters title of 2013 and 25th overall masters title. He is already on top of the list.

Nadal had earlier said that he is very keen to return to Montreal.

“I will try to arrive competitive in Montreal,” said Nadal, “because seven weeks without playing isn’t ideal for competing in such a difficult tournament, with the best players in the world. But I’ll do everything possible for things to go well.”

He also said that,

“I’m approaching this part of the season in exactly the same way,” said Nadal. “Of course, what happened in the four months I’ve been able to compete this year was fantastic, but there’s still lots more to come and you have to be well prepared.”
