Nadal cautious on return

February 06, 2013 15:08:04 UK
Rafael Nadal will be keen to add to his 11 Grand Slam titles but has taken a cautious approach on his return to action.

Former world number one Rafael Nadal remains cautious over his return to competitive action after a lengthy spell on the sidelines with serious knee problems.

The Spaniard competed in a doubles match with Juan Monaco on Tuesday and the pair won comfortably, beating Frantisek Cermak and Lukas Dlouhy 6-3 6-2 at the VTR Open in Chile.

Nadal will take on Federico Delbonis in a singles match on Wednesday and the seven-time French Open champion believes this will give a better indication of his physical condition.

"It was a great feeling to play again and I'm very happy for doing it with a friend like Monaco in a great atmosphere that we had on the court," Nadal said. "In doubles the effort is always less; we will see how it goes in singles and how my physical condition is.

"I chose this tournament because it is the perfect time and surface. My aim is to compete courageously and hopefully the knee will stand up to it."

Nadal, who has 11 Grand Slam titles to his name, is now the world number five after his injury nightmare and will be keen to climb the rankings now he is back in action.

However, it would appear as if the 26-year-old is cautious on his return as he admits he is still feeling some discomfort in his troublesome knee.

Nadal can be backed at 1.57 to win the French Open, while British number one Andy Murray is 1213.00 to come out on top in Paris.
