While all his rivals are playing at the Australian Open, former world number one Rafael Nadal has announced that will make his comeback from injury at next month's Brazil Open. Seven-time French Open champion Nadal, 26, has suffered from tendonitis in his knee since losing to Lukas Rosol in the second round of Wimbledon in June 2012. The Spaniard was forced to withdraw from the Australian Open after his recovery was set back by a stomach virus.
Nadal also missed the London 2012 Olympics and the US Open due to his knee problem. The Spanish player has slipped to fourth position in the world rankings during his absence from the Tour. Britain's Andy Murray won the US Open in September and has moved up to number three.
Nadal's appearance in the indoor tournament in Sao Paulo will be his first on the tour in South America since 2005. The tournament begins on 11 February. Despite his fitness problems Nadal is still the favourite to win this year's Frech Open, you can already bet on that at Bet365, where he is priced at 5/6, with Novak Djokovic at 15/8.
