Stomach illness won’t stop Nadal from Madrid start

Afp, Madrid

Five-time champion Rafael Nadal acknowledged that he will be counting on his physical reserves when he makes his Madrid Open start Wednesday as he recovers from a stomach virus.

The second seed will get his campaign for a sixth Madrid title under way with a first-time meeting with Canada's fast-rising teenager Felix Augur-Aliassime, in the second round.

The Spaniard, who turns 33 next month during Roland Garros, said that while he might not be at 100 percent for the match, he will go in fighting.

“I've been going through a virus. The positive side is: I've been able to train at least an hour-and-a-half (per session),” Nadal said. “I hope that tomorrow is going to be a bit better, I'm going to improve.

“I'm a bit better than yesterday and yesterday was better than the day before.”

But the 17-time Grand Slam winner warned: "It's true that when you have this virus and stomach viruses, the body's a bit weaker.
