Current condition, seasonal goals and doping the main topics handled

Today, Rafael Nadal held his first press conference at Vina del Mar. The ATP 250 event is going to start next Monday, today the Main Draw exposition.

The first topic discussed by the former world n.1 was his current physical condition: "I had the necessary time to recover. If the knee won’t give problems, I won’t have fear to get on court and fight.”

Talking about his comeback, Rafa said: "I hope to be able to play at an acceptable level, at the moment my goal is to reach a decent level. With sacrifice and humility I could improve and one day be back to my levels before the injury.”

Is his goal to get to number one again in 2013?

"After seven months absence it’s complicated, I will play match after match, week by week, hoping that my body will support me and will allow me to obtain the hoped results. I was in the first two position of the ranking for eight years.”

Nadal also spoke about: "I think it’s right to make the necessary checks. I myself, this year, was subjected to six blood and urine exams.”

About Chile: "It’s a growing country. I hope to do well this week so that I can spend some more time here.”

Last words for Nicolas Massu: ”Chilean tennis lived nice moments. Nicolas Massu and Fernando Gonzales gave big satisfaction, especially at the Olympic Games. I think that Nicolas is a great example for all to follow”.
