MADRID, Spain—After a seven-month hiatus nursing an injured knee, Rafael
Nadal is nervous about his upcoming return to the tennis court and believes it
may be some time before he is back in top form. Justin Tucker Super Bowl Jersey . “I have my
doubts. Its normal, we are talking about a knee, so of course I am afraid to see
how it is going respond,” Nadal told Canal Plus television on Friday. “But I can
only trust my doctors and believe in myself and that everything will be all
right.” The 26-year-old Spaniard is set to play an exhibition tournament in Abu
Dhabi on Dec. 27, his first action since being sidelined with tendinitis in his
left knee following a second-round loss to then 100th-ranked Lukas Rosol at
Wimbledon in June. The injury prevented Nadal from defending his Olympic singles
gold at the London Games, where he was supposed to be Spains flag bearer in the
opening ceremony. He also had to pull out of the U.S. Open and Spains Davis Cup
final against the Czech Republic, which his teammates lost without him. The
11-time Grand Slam winner and former No. 1 said his knee has improved over the
last two months after making frustratingly little progress during the summer.
Even so, he acknowledged that he may have to skip some more events in order to
get back to full speed. “Im prepared to accept that at the start my knee might
not respond well and I may have to take it easy, mixing periods of play and rest
for the first three months,” he said. Nadal said that he wanted to play at
Indian Wells and Miami with the goal of being completely fit by April to play at
Monte Carlo, a clay-court tournament he has dominated for eight consecutive
years. The Abu Dhabi tournament features a six-man field that includes
top-ranked Novak Djokovic and No. 3 Andy Murray of Britain. Kelechi Osemele Jersey .J. —The scene was

scan and be assessed by medics on Thursday before a decision is made about
whether the Chelsea player can remain in the 23-man squad, which has already
been submitted to UEFA. On Monday, central midfielder Gareth Barry was ruled out
of the tournament because of a stomach injury and replaced by Phil Jagielka. Terrell Suggs Elite Jersey . The Wildcats
beat one of the newcomers in their conference. Only a few minutes after No. 1
Alabama lost, Klein threw a 62-yard pass to set up the first of his two
touchdown runs and the Wildcats went on to a 23-10 victory Saturday night at
TCU. NEW ORLEANS —The Hornets, Suns and Timberwolves have agreed to a
multiplayer trade sending 7-foot centre Robin Lopez and forward Hakim Warrick
from Phoenix to New Orleans, while moving forward Wesley Johnson and a
first-round draft pick from Minnesota to Phoenix, a person familiar with the
deal said. The person told The Associated Press about the trade on condition of
anonymity Wednesday because it has not been announced pending the completion of
some routine logistical matters. The deal also sends guard Jerome Dyson and
retiring centre Brad Millers $5.1 million contract from New Orleans to
Minnesota, allowing the Timberwolves to clear space under the NBAs salary cap as
they pursue free agents. Minnesota also will receive two second-round draft
picks from New Orleans, while the Hornets will receive cash. Minnesota general
manager David Kahn declined to confirm the deal when asked about it on a
conference call Wednesday, saying only that he is “not allowed to comment on
anything that hasnt been consummated.” The acquisition of Lopez fills a need at
centre for the Hornets, who traded away Emeka Okafor and let Chris Kaman go in
free agency. While the Hornets were able to draft 6-11 Kentucky star
Anthony Davis first overall in last months draft, Davis is expected to play
often at power forward because his slender build could leave him at a defensive
dissadvantage in one-on-one matchups against some of the leagues more powerful
centres such as Dwight Howard or Andrew Bynum. Justin Tucker Black Jersey. The Hornets also
have 7-footer Jason Smith on the roster, and while he has filled in at centre
well when called upon, he has been primarily a reserve power forward during his
career. New Orleans now has made two trades to acquire new front court players,
having also dealt forward Gustavo Ayon to Orlando for 6-10 sharpshooter
Ryan Anderson, a perimeter threat who can space out an opposing defence. Lopez
was drafted 15th overall by the Suns in 2008. Before that, he starred at
Stanford with his twin brother, Brook, now a starter with Brooklyn Nets.
Robin Lopez has been an off-and-on starter in the NBA and was a reserve for all
64 games in which he appeared last season, averaging 5.4 points, 3.3 rebounds
and 0.7 blocks in 14 minutes a game. Warrick, a former Syracuse standout now
entering his eighth season, started periodically in Memphis early in his career,
but played a reserve role the past two seasons in Phoenix. For his career, he
has averaged 9.5 points and 4.1 rebounds in 20.4 minutes. The 6-7 Johnson is
entering his third season in the NBA out of Syracuse. He has averaged 7.7 points
and 2.9 rebounds in 24.6 minutes in his young career. ———AP Sports Writer
