Rafael Nadal is being treated for a back injury that hampered him in the Australian Open final, although the top-ranked tennis player is expected to recover in time for his next scheduled tournament.

The Spaniard, who returned home to Majorca yesterday, is having intensive physiotherapy and taking anti-inflammatory drugs before resuming training, according to a statement from his publicist Benito Perez-Barbadillo.

Top seed Nadal, who has won 13 Grand Slams, lost in four sets to Switzerland’s Stanislas Wawrinka in Melbourne last weekend. The next tournament Nadal is schedule to play in starts Feb. 10 in Buenos Aires, Perez-Barbadillo said by phone. Nadal, who had missed last year’s Melbourne Grand Slam with a knee injury, received treatment on his back during the final with Wawrinka, the eighth seed.
