Take a look back at each of Rafael Nadal's 13 Grand Slam titles.

Rafael Nadal is returning to South America to play early next year in the inaugural Rio Open.

Nadal began his comeback from a left-knee injury seven months ago in Chile. This time he'll be playing in Brazil under far different conditions as the defending US Open and French Open champion.

The Feb. 15-23 clay-court tournament is a combined ATP and WTA event and will be played at the Jockey Club Brasileiro. Fellow Spaniard David Ferrer is also in the field.
