Rafael Nadal will begin practicing next week after being off the tour since June 28 due to knee injuries. Nadal’s uncle and coach Toni told DPA that his nephew will spend this weekend watching the Davis Cup final from home, and then get back on court.

“Things are going well. But the doctor said we had to strengthen the tendon, and there we are,” said Toni Nadal. “What matters is that the tendon is at full strength.”

There are still plans for Nadal to return at the Abu Dhabi exhibition and the end of this year, and then play in Doha at the start of 2013 before heading to Australia.
