World number four tennis player Rafael Nadal has been playing golf on quite regular basis these days. The Spaniard is one of the best tennis players in history and that sport is his life but he also loves to play golf.

Not just that he likes to play golf, another reason for heading to the course is that this is the only sport that Nadal’s doctors have allowed him to play these days. The Spanish star has not played a single tennis match in the last three months due to the prevailing knee injury.

Nadal uploaded a picture on his facebook page in which he can be seen hitting a shot. The Spaniard wrote this caption, “Practicing the only sport that I can play according with the doctors.”

The 26-year-old often goes to play Golf. The Mallorca, Spain resident says that he plans to become a professional golf player once his tennis career gets over.

The 11-time Grand Slam champion is trying to regain match fitness as soon as possible. He has not played any tournament since losing to Lukas Rosol in the second round of Wimbledon. No one was expecting this to happen when Nadal was winning one event after the other during the clay court season. The Spanish hero captured four titles, including his record breaking seventh French Open title.

However, Nadal faced knee problem and withdrew from the London Olympics, where he was supposed to defend his Gold Medal that he had won in Beijing four years back. The Spaniard also pulled out of Toronto Masters, Cincinnati Masters, US Open and Davis Cup semi-finals.

The Golden Grand Slam champion is now expected to make a comeback in early November for the season ending championships and Davis Cup final.
