Nadal to make comeback at next month's Brazil Open

January 16, 2013 14:19 IST

French Open champion Rafael Nadal will make his long-awaited comeback from injury at next month's Brazil Open, the ATP confirmed on Tuesday.

The Mallorcan former World No 1 has been sidelined with a knee injury since last year's Wimbledon tournament and his hopes of returning at the Australian Open were hit by illness.

It will be Nadal's first appearance on the tour in South America since 2005.

The tournament is staged indoors in Sao Paulo.
