Rafael Nadal resumes his comeback this week in Acapulco, Mexico where the King of Clay headlines a deep field that includes countrymen Nicolas Almagro and David Ferrer. Before he hit his first ball, he addressed the local press and of course updated those that gathered on his knee.
“The injury is better, not perfect still bothering me because even though everything is on track. It’s a slow process, it takes patience in the coming weeks,” Nadal said via Google translation.
Nadal, who won the Acapulco title in his last visit in 2005, plays qualifier Diego Sebastian Schwartzman of Argentine in his first round tomorrow.
Rafa was at the Sunday night player party where a young Canadian star on the women’s tour got a lucky photo with the great.
