Tennis: Nadal expects to be fully fit for Rio

MADRID, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 20th july, 2016) : Fourteen-time major champion Rafael Nadal said Wednesday that he is confident of being fully recovered from injury for the Rio Olympics in a fortnight. The Spaniard has not played since pulling out of the French Open before the third round because of a wrist injury, and on Tuesday he confirmed his withdrawal from next week's Toronto Masters.

But the 30-year-old is looking forward to returning to action in Brazil ready for a tilt at a second Olympic gold medal, to add to the singles title he won eight years ago in Beijing. "I hope I can move a little farther forward each day and reach Rio well prepared," Nadal said. "The timing is good, there are two and a half weeks before the tournament." Nadal will compete in the singles in Rio, as well as in the mixed doubles alongside women's French Open champion Garbine Muguruza.
