And I’m going to work as hard as I can, and I’m going to play and practice with the highest tactical possible to be 100 percent ready for Melbourne. For me it’s a big goal to be ready for there and I’m going to fight for it.”And that means he plans to go into the first major of the year with only one exhibition match and a Fast4 appearance on top of his training program.“It’s a waste to damage my body for one month if I keep playing here,” said Nadal, who has spent lengthy periods on the sidelines because of injuries during his career. “After all the things that happened to me, probably I am not ready to assume that waste.”Nadal said he had been able to practice confidently since ankle surgery at the start of November, and felt better now than he did at this time last year when he had less time to prepare and was coming off a longer injury-enforced break.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum After winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk 2 buses bound for SEA Games opening collide in Bulacan PLAY LIST 00:412 buses bound for SEA Games opening collide in Bulacan00:50Trending Articles01:26Filipino culture takes spotlight as 2019 SEA Games officially opens02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award No.13 lucky for Orlando Bloom MOST READ LATEST STORIES Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Phivolcs: Slim probability of Taal Volcano caldera eruption “My hope is to win the Australian Open,” he said. “And being honest, I feel myself playing well.

So if I don’t play here, I probably secure that I’m going to be 100 percent ready for Melbourne.” Taro Daniel, a lucky loser from qualifying, will take Nadal’s place in the Brisbane International draw and will play Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the second round.The Australian Open, the first Grand Slam tournament of the year, starts Jan. 14 at Melbourne Park. Nadal had to retire in the fifth set of his quarterfinal match against Marin Cilic at last year’s Australian Open and he said earlier this week that he is changing his approach this season.Despite the retirements that bookended his 2018 season, Nadal finished with a 45-4 win-loss record and won five of the nine tournaments he entered, including the French Open.With that kind of success, he said, he decided to focus on quality performances rather than quantity of matches and that means not playing with niggling injuries.“(In the past) I felt that I needed matches and time to be ready to compete at a good level,” he said, but that’s “not the situation today.”ADVERTISEMENT Shinya Aoki excited to fight for ONE lightweight belt vs Eduard Folayang in hometown Japan Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Raphael Nadal of Spain announces that he is pulling out of the tournament due to injury at the Brisbane International tennis tournament in Brisbane, Australia, Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2019.
