Rafa Nadal set to make his comeback at Paris Masters

Rafael Nadal has not played since the US Open but is in the draw for the Paris Masters, news which was welcomed by the ATP World Tour.

Nadal to make Paris comeback

World number one Rafael Nadal will make his comeback from a knee injury at the Paris Masters next week. The Spaniard had to withdraw with the issue in his last-four contest with Juan Martín del Potro at the US Open and missed the China Open and Shanghai Masters, as well as Spain's Davis Cup semi-final. But on Friday, Nadal was included in the draw for the Paris Masters where he has a bye in the first round.

The ATP World Tour later Tweeted to welcome Nadal back, posting: "Great to see @RafaelNadal back in action!"

Paris challenge

Nadal has never won the tournament in the French capital, but will be hoping to build some momentum ahead of next month's ATP Finals in London.
