“What I have to do this month is to get myself fit physically, progress my tennis as much as possible and lay the foundations to start well in Abu Dhabi and in Doha,” he added further.

“I play well at the start of the year, that could be enough to arrive in Australia well prepared.”

Nadal, 28, has clinched just one Grand Slam title Down Under in 2009.
