Melbourne, Apr 17 (ANI): Spanish tennis star Rafael Nadal is concerned about his knee as he prepares to begin his quest for an eighth successive Monte Carlo Masters title.
Nadal, the world No 2 who plays his opening match tomorrow, against Jarkko Nieminen, has not won a tournament for 10 months and has lost to Novak Djokovic in seven successive finals.
Nadal has started practicing again after pulling out of his semi-final against Andy Murray at last month's Sony Ericsson Open.
He went under treatment for a knee tendon problem.
"It's OK now, (I need) time to see how it is at the top level, (to) run without thinking about the knee, when I put all my pressure on the knee. It's the start of the clay-court season for me, and hopefully it will work well," Nadal said.
"I start(ed) to practice four days ago, it's not enough after 15 days off without chances to practice a lot because I couldn't move my knee. I'm a little bit scared, but seems like today I am able to practice with no (problems)," he said.
The Spaniard is relieved to be back on clay, where the strain is considerably easier on his knees, news.com.au reports. (ANI)
