ATP World No.1 Rafael Nadal has said that he is 100% fit after recovering from a thigh injury sustained in the Australian Open.
Th Spaniard has been out of action since losing to fellow Spaniard David Ferrer in the quarter-finals of January's Australian Open after suffering a thigh injury early in the opening set. However, he is now set to make his comeback for Spain's Davis Cup first round tie against Belgium in Cherleroi on Friday.
If I am here it is because, physically, I am 100%. I am fine now. I already start to practice a few weeks ago so I'm happy to be back in competition, back in important competition like Davis Cup.
And, for sure, it's a motivation to be back on the team. And sure it's going to be a difficult confrontation against Belgium.
Spain will look to jolt current Champions Serbia for the title. They remain well-placed to do exactly that as they boast a very strong squad including Nadal, World No. 6 David Ferrer, World No. 9 Fernando Verdasco and No. 40 Feliciano Lopez.
