“Rafa will play in Montreal. That’s good news for us,” said Toni Nadal. ,
But Toni tempered the statement adding that Rafa “won’t be at his best” according to a SportsYa.com translation.
Nadal has not played a match since his stunning loss to Robin Soderling in the fourth round at the French Open due to ongoing issues of knee tendinitis which forced his withdrawal from Queen’s and from Wimbledon.
Nadal won the Canadian Open last year and in 2005.
