I`m fit to play, says Rafael Nadal

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.`
