Nadal posted a picture to Twitter showing him training at his indoor academy on Tuesday
The Spaniard wrote: ‘It’s indoor season time… this picture was earlier today practicing at the @rnadalacademy… And yes… getting ready for #ParisBercy.’
Nadal’s appearance in Paris also makes it much more likely that he will take his place at the ATP Finals, which is being held in London for the final time.
It is the biggest title the 34-year-old has never won and, by playing indoors, he has the chance to put some pressure on Novak Djokovic at the top of the rankings.
