US Open 2014: Rafael Nadal on track to return from wrist injury in time for last Grand Slam of the year
Spanish federation says world No 2's recovery is going according to plan
Rafael Nadal is on course to recover from his wrist injury in time to compete at the US Open, which begins in 19 days’ time.
The world No 2 pulled out of this week’s Toronto Masters and next week’s tournament in Cincinnati, but the Spanish federation said that his recovery was going according to plan.
Nadal, who is wearing a cast on his right wrist, is continuing to train in Majorca with a view to returning at the year’s final Grand Slam event in New York. “Following a scan and clinical evaluation, his progress is on track, although he will still have tests from time to time,” the Spanish federation reported on their website.

However, Kei Nishikori could miss the US Open because of a toe problem. The world No 11 has been told he needs three weeks to recover from an injury to the big toe on his right foot. He has already withdrawn from the Toronto and Cincinnati events.
