ACAPULCO, Mexico (AFP) - Rafael Nadal will test his troublesome left knee again this week at the Mexico Open, then decide if he will brave the first Masters Series event of the year on the hard courts of Indian Wells.

Spain's 11-time Grand Slam champion will conclude a three-tournament Latin American comeback tour in Acapulco, playing in his third ATP clay-court tournament in four weeks.

He came back from an injury layoff of seven months to reach the final in Vina del Mar, Chile, and followed up by winning the title in Sao Paulo on February 18.

In Brazil he needed just 78 minutes to beat Argentina's David Nalbandian 6-2, 6-3 in the title match.
