Nadal could miss Australian Open

Rafael Nadal (pictured right) still has no timetable for his return from a knee injury, and the 11-time Grand Slam champion isn’t sure if he’ll play the Australian Open in January. “All that is in my mind is to keep working hard to come back,” Nadal said Tuesday. “I cannot think about the future because it’s not like if you break your arm and you know you will have a few weeks like this, then a few weeks like that and then you are back.” The Spaniard hasn’t played since losing in the second round of Wimbledon in June to little-known Lukas Rosol. Nadal is recovering from a partially torn patella tendon in his left knee. He could miss the ATP World Tour Finals in London Nov. 5-12 and Spain’s Davis Cup final against the Czech Republic Nov. 16-18. – Associated Press
