After visiting with his doctor in Barcelona, Rafael Nadal says he is not concerned about the back problems he experienced in the Australian Open final. Nadal was told that he only suffered a back spasm in his four-set loss to Stanislas Wawrinka.

The world No. 1 also told reporters that his blistered left hand is fine. Nadal said he felt back pain during the Montreal Masters last summer, but it was not as severe as the pain he felt during Sunday's final.
