Nadal trains away from public eye as intrigue builds

The intrigue surrounding the fitness of world No.2 Rafael Nadal has not subsided, with the Spaniard quietly practising away from the public gaze a few days out from his round one Australian Open match.

Only photographers were allowed to get a short glimpse of Nadal training on Saturday as the 20-time grand slam winner battles to overcome a lower back injury.

The public and journalists were kept at a distance with photographers only allowed a five minute window to shoot some pictures, but a source lucky enough to see Nadal step out onto court said he was not noticeably impeded.
