I will put my fitness before results: Nadal

Rafael Nadal (left) will not worry about results as he makes his latest comeback from persistent knee problems at an exhibition tournament in Abu Dhabi next week.

“I am not nervous,” he told The Times. “The only thing is the knee... it doesn’t matter how I play tennis in the next month or month and a half.

For me, my goal is not Abu Dhabi, it is not Doha, it is not the Australian Open - my goal is to try to be fit… to try to arrive at Monte Carlo and the clay-court season in good shape.”
