Rafael Nadal declares himself fit for Australian Open

The world No.1 played just his second match in almost three months, losing to veteran Frenchman Richard Gasquet 6-4 7-5 in their exhibition outing in Melbourne today.

But more importantly, the Spaniard looked to be moving freely on his troublesome knee.

“It was a good test for me and good practice,” Nadal said.

“Yeah, I’m very happy to be in Australia again first of all,” Nadal told Channel 7 after the loss suffered to Gasquet. “I had a long year last year, so I had to start my preparation later than usual, but I’ve arrived with plenty of time and it’s a good day to start again the feelings of playing a match. “It’s not an official match but still a test for me and good practice, that’s the most important thing, that’s the most important thing for the whole season. 

“I am good if I am here, and if I wasn’t feeling good I would not be here, so that’s good news,” Nadal added. “So, I just need to keep practicing hard the next couple of days to be ready for the Australian Open.”
