Nadal set to return from injury in a month

12:39 pm on 4 October 2012

The Spanish tennis superstar Rafael Nadal, who's been sidelined by a knee injury since June, will resume training in two weeks with the aim of playing in the ATP Tour Finals and the Davis Cup final.

That's the world from his uncle and coach Toni Nadal.

The 26-year-old Rafa Nadal said last week he wouldn't return to the game until he was 100 per cent fit.

The ATP Tour Finals in London start on the 5th of November, and Spain open their Davis Cup defence against the Czech Republic in Prague on the 16th of next month.

Both events will be played on hard courts, which are more likely to aggravate existing injuries than Nadal's favoured clay surface.
