Rafael Nadal’s PR agency confirmed this morning that the Spanish star will play next week in Beijing and then in two weeks in Shanghai.

On his way to Beijing, Nadal will stop in Kazakhstan for an exo match against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga this Thursday.
Nadal hasn’t played since a stunning Wimbledon loss to Nick Kyrgios at Wimbledon. The former No. 1 then had to withdraw from title defenses in Canada, Cincinnati and the US Open due to a right wrist injury he sustained during practice in July.
Rafa is also expected to play in Basel (with Roger Federer) and the Paris Indoors along with the London ATP Finals. With a busy schedule ahead, Nadal withdrew his name from the IPTL exo league.
