Nadal set to resume training from leg injury

Published Feb. 9, 2011 6:56 p.m. ET

Top-ranked Rafael Nadal can train again after recovering from a leg muscle injury sustained during his quarterfinal loss at the Australian Open.

Nadal tore a muscle in his right leg during a straight-sets defeat to fellow Spaniard David Ferrer on Jan. 26.

But Nadal says his doctor has cleared him to return to the court to begin preparing for Spain's Davis Cup first-round series at Belgium from March 4-6.

Nadal says: ''I am going to start training slowly, following a plan, so that there are no setbacks.''

The Australian Open injury kept Nadal from holding all four Grand Slam titles at once. The 24-year-old says he cried in the locker room after his loss to Ferrer.
