Rafael Nadal will return to competition at next week’s Paris Masters before taking his place at the season-ending ATP Finals, coach Carlos Moya said.

Nadal has struggled with injuries this year, capturing his 14th French Open title while playing with pain-killing injections to deal with a chronic foot injury and pulling out of Wimbledon due to an abdominal problem.

Following his defeat to Frances Tiafoe at the US Open in September he said he needed to “fix things” and was unsure about when he would play again.

He also took time off for the birth of his first child with wife Mery Perello on October 8.
