Nadal and Djokovic to test injuries at Kooyong

Nadal and Djokovic to test injuries at Kooyong

Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will use the Kooyong Classic starting Tuesday as a convenient emergency stop to gain much-needed match practice as the pair return from injury in time for the Australian Open.

Not since the glory days of Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras nearly two decades ago and more recently Roger Federer, has the long-time exhibition event hosted as distinguished a field.

The upcoming edition will feature five of the world's top 10, including David Goffin, Dominic Thiem, Croat Marin Cilic and Pablo Carreno Busta.

Nadal to make Australian return in exhibition event

Nadal to make Australian return in exhibition event

Rafa Nadal, who is struggling to get any match practice before the Australian Open, will play an exhibition event at Melbourne Park in the week leading up to the season opening grand slam, organizers said on Monday.

Rafa has not played since he withdrew from the season-ending World Tour Finals in London in November with a knee injury.

He had already withdrawn from an exhibition tournament in Abu Dhabi, this week's Brisbane International and another event in Sydney, citing a lack of time to properly prepare.

Nadal named ITF world champions

Rafael Nadal was named as the International Tennis Federation (ITF) world champions on Friday.

Nadal, who claimed the honor for the third time, made a sensational comeback from an injury-plagued 2016, winning a 10th French Open title and the U.S. Open to take his grand slam haul to 16, three behind Roger Federer who also won two of the year's majors after returning from injury.

Rafa ended the year as world number one, although he pulled out of the season-ending ATP Finals in London due to a knee injury.

Lukasz Kubot of Poland and Marcelo Melo of Brazil won the men's doubles award while Chan Yun-Jan of Chinese Taipei and the recently-retired Martina Hingis of Switzerland took the women's prize.
