Recovering Nadal Fears No One Sports pundit

Former world number one Rafael Nadal admits he’s still feeling pain in his knee at times but says he fears none of tennis’ big guns.

The Spaniard, who has won the French Open seven consecutive times, won the Brasil Open this week as he continues his return from a long-term knee injury.

“We are going to see how the knee responds and then take stock,” Nadal said as he begins to plot his way towards Roland Garros.

“I don’t have any problem playing against better rivals because I accept that I can lose. Losing is not a problem for me.

“I just need time to continue improving and return to a more competitive level.”

On his Brasil Open success, he added: “It’s a great title and important for me.

“Yesterday (during the semi-final) the knee hurt. Today it’s better, rather bearable. I am happy to win in Brazil for the second time.”
