Rafael Nadal is recovering satisfactorily from appendicitis and will continue a course of antibiotics in a bid to be fit for the remainder of the 2014 season, the world number two’s spokesman said on Thursday.
In medical terms his development is satisfactory and he is not currently showing any symptoms. The (antibiotics) treatment will continue for 4-5 days and depending on his recovery the necessary decisions will be taken on further treatment.
Rafa said after his Shanghai exit he was planning to play the indoor hard court tournament in Basel later this month as well as the Paris Masters and the season-ending ATP Tour Finals in London. Our champ will then have surgery to remove his appendix and hope to be back in time for the beginning of the 2015 season.
