In Chile final, Nadal loses to Zeballos




VINA DEL MAR, Chile - Rafael Nadal said all along it might take a while to return to form after seven months off due to an inflamed left knee. In the meantime, the Spaniard is happy to be back on the court.

Nadal lost the singles and doubles finals at the VTR Open on Sunday, but sounded upbeat despite the disappointing finish to his comeback tournament.

“I hope this is the beginning of a lot of tournaments and a lot of good results for me,” he said.

Nadal was beaten by Argentina’s Horacio Zeballos in three sets in the singles final. Then Nadal and partner Juan Monaco lost 6-2, 6-4 in the doubles final against the Italian pair of Paolo Lorenzi and Potito Starace.
