    Nadal schedules fresh training around Davis Cup TV times Rafael Nadal is set to return to training next week after a five-month pause. But the Spaniard is scheduling his weekend preliminary work around his country's Davis Cup finals matches this weekend in Prague.

    He is making sure not to miss a moment of the tie with the Czech Republic on television.

    "We will adapt the schedules of physio and fitness so as to be home at the time of the matches," uncle and coach Toni Nadal told dpa. "Next week we will be back on the courts. That's the plan."

    Nadal has not hit a ball since June 28 when he went out in the second round of Wimbledon to Czech Lukas Rosol, included on the team facing five-time Davis Cup champion Spain.

    The world No. 4 Nadal has been suffering with a set of knee injuries which have required time to be put right.

    Nadal is due to make a well-paid return to the courts at next month's post-Christmas Abu Dhabi exhibition event. There are also feelers out from the AAMI Classic at Melbourne's Kooyong club, held prior to the January 14 start of the Australian Open.

    "Things are going well, but the doctor said we had to really strengthen the tendon, and we're doing that," Toni said of Rafa's knee injury progress.
