Rio de Janeiro: Rafael Nadal is returning to South America to play early next year in the inaugural Rio Open.
Nadal began his comeback from a left-knee injury seven months ago in Chile. This time he'll be playing in Brazil under far different conditions as the defending US Open and French Open champion.
The February 15-23 clay-court tournament is a combined ATP and WTA event and will be played at the Jockey Club Brasileiro. Fellow Spaniard David Ferrer is also in the field.
