Nadal's leg injury just needs rest

6:12 am on 17 February 2009

The World tennis number one Rafael Nadal says all he needs is some rest to recover from the leg problem which hampered him during yesterday's loss to the Scot Andy Murray in the final of the World Indoor Tournament in Rotterdam.

Nadal has been battling knee problems for some time, but he and his medical team are almost certain there'll be no long term problem.

The Spaniard is due to compete in Dubai next week and he's sure he'll be 100 percent fit in time for Spain's Davis Cup opener against Serbia in the first week of March.
