World No 2 Rafael Nadal has been named in the Spain squad for the Davis Cup finals in Madrid next month.

Nadal was included in a list of five Spanish players, with Roberto Bautista, Pablo Carreno, Feliciano Lopez and Marcel Granollers also picked by coach Sergi Bruguera.

A wrist injury forced Nadal to withdraw from the Shanghai Masters three weeks ago and it remains to be seen whether the 19-time grand slam champion is fit enough to play.

World number 40 Fernando Verdasco said he was “very disappointed” to be left out.

“Very sad and disappointed not to be in the team of @CopaDavis and that the captain #SergiBruguera doesn’t count on me,” Verdasco wrote on Twitter. “I was very excited to possibly play my last Davis Cup in my city (#Madrid). Thanks to all those that do believe in me!”
