Nadal:”I will not compete at Brisbane!”

“After a long time without competing, I felt a little pain in my leg,” said Nadal at a press conference in Brisbane. “I did a magnetic tomography, and it shows a very small sprain on my left thigh. I tried to play and still i want to play.”

Nadal, who underwent MRI scanning on Tuesday, admitted: “There is always a time difference between here and Spain. So, I talked to my doctors there yesterday and I had to wait until today to make the final decision.

“I feel better than four days ago. I’m probably going to be fine in five days. However, I think I’ll be 100 percent ready for Melbourne. »

Said the 32-year-old Nadal who still plans to compete at the Australian Open, which starts on January 14th.
