Rafael Nadal spoke about his physical condition. The Spanish player is trying to recover from an abdominal issue. "I started yesterday, very slow. For me the main goal is to be healthy for Monday. I'm confident I can be competitive but you need to be 100 per cent ready.
I hope to be serving every day. Davis Cup is another big event. I'm doing what the doctors tell me to do, I'm trying to be ready for everything. I'm excited to be in London. Davis Cup, we'll look at after here."
"I need to go day by day", continued the 19-time Grand Slam winner. "I'm happy to be here because after last Saturday in Paris I didn't know if I would have the chance to be here. So I'm excited to be here after a couple of years without being able to play.
I need to see how things evolve every single day. I have good hopes to be 100 per cent ready for Monday." "I have been serving very well in Bercy (Paris), I had good matches, so I am confident that I can be very competitive but of course it's a tournament that you will face the top guys since the beginning so you need to be 100 per cent ready.
But I really hope I will be able to serve every single day a little better and my hope is to be on Sunday serving normal."
