Just days after injury concerns with his left knee forced him out of the Sony Ericsson Open Miami tournament, Rafael Nadal now says his ailing knee is doing well and that he’ll be ready to play the Monte Carlo Masters.
“Hi all. Already in Mallorca wanted to send a message to all my fans. Went to one of my doctors today and the knee is doing well. I expect to be soon practicing and ready to the next competition. Thanks all for your support!!” Nadal posted via Facebook.
Rafa said he first felt discomfort before Indian Wells, but in Miami, where he also played doubles, the pain in his left knee grew to a level which prevented him from taking the court against Andy Murray in the Miami semifinals on Friday.
Nadal is expected to play in Monte Carlo in two weeks, then Barcelona before Masters events in Madrid and Rome as a lead-up to the French Open.
