PHOTOS: Rafael Nadal Begins ATP Cup Preparations In Perth

Rafael Nadal went straight to work in his bid to lead Team Spain at the ATP Cup trophy. Spain will face Georgia, Japan and Uruguay in Group B.

Rafa’s first goal is to acclimatise to Australian conditions to give reigning Davis Cup champions and pre-tournament favourites Spain the best shot possible of winning the inaugural 24-nation ATP Cup.

Hopefully we arrive in good shape. We have five days to practice well before the competition. We are looking forward to play good here in the ATP Cup and then we are going to have one week in Melbourne before the (Open) to start to prepare. We are excited to be here and to compete well at this great event. I have been to Brisbane a couple of times (as a warm-up to the Australian Open). This time Perth. I am excited to know a different place,” Rafa said.

    Australia is experiencing record-breaking heat especially in Perth and Sydney. That means wildfires and dangerously high temperatures. Be safe all of you.
