B1PR, Rafael Nadal’s PR agency, released a statement today on the condition of Rafa’s back and his plans for the next tournament. Here is the original press release, in Spanish:
Here is a very rough Google translation of it, edited for semantics and form:
Rafa Nadal returned to Mallorca today after tests yesterday at the Mapfre Medical Tennis Clinic with Dr. Angel Ruiz-Cotorro, doctor of the Royal Spanish Tennis Federation.
The tests were satisfactory and showed a favorable development [in the condition] of the injury.
The player has now begun his work in fitness and his adaptation to the track/court in the next few days will determine when he will be able to return to competition. This is initially scheduled for the tournament next week in Buenos Aires.
Rafa will return to training on Thursday in Mallorca.
