Rafael Nadal tells reporters in Acapulco that he is not 100 percent healthy yet. Nadal returned to play three weeks ago in Vina del Mar after taking seven months off due to knee trouble. The fifth-ranked Spaniard is the second seed in Acapulco, and could face countryman and world No. 4 David Ferrer in the final.

“The pain continues, but I can’t specify what the level of pain is,” he said. “There are days when there is more pain and days when there is less. It’s clear I am not 100 percent. But after all that time [off] I’m happy to return to compete.”
