In tennis: Rafael Nadal back from injury for Davis Cup quarter-finals

World number two Rafael Nadal has been named in Spain’s squad for their Davis Cup World Group quarter-final against Germany in Valencia next month. The 31-year-old has not played in the competition since helping five-time winners Spain return to the top tier of world tennis with victory in India in 2016.

Nadal, 16-times Grand Slam champion, withdrew from the Australian Open in January after reaching the last eight due to an upper quad problem. The Davis Cup quarter-finals take place over the weekend of April 6 to 8th.
