eyes are on Rafael Nadal as the Spaniard steps onto court for the first
time since late June to test his chronic knee injuries with a doubles
match in Chile. Coach and uncle Toni Nadal believes his nephew has
improved after four days of training since arriving.

Nadal might easily become a fresh target for opponents as he returns to
tennis after more than seven months away due to his lingering knee
problems. Three-time Australian Open finalist Andy Murray believes that
the one-time king of clay could well be vulnerable to rivals as he steps
back into action over the next month at three smaller ATP events.

Officials are worried that the Norman Brookes Challenge Cup is
critically short of silver real estate, with room for only one name
