London: Defending champion Rafael Nadal said on Tuesday that he will be fit to play his Wimbledon quarter-final against Mardy Fish after a scan revealed he had not suffered a serious left foot injury.

The world number one suffered the injury in the first set of Monday's last 16 win over Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro and immediately revealed that his future participation in the tournament was in doubt.

But the 25-year-old revealed on his Facebook page that he will be fit to tackle Fish on Wednesday.

'Yesterday after the match I went to take an MRI at a London hospital,' he said.

'During the match I thought I had something serious. But as the match went on the pain got better and thankfully the tests don't show an injury.'

'Today I will practice at 4.30 pm and I'll play tomorrow. Thanks all for the support.'
