Rafael Nadal admits that he could find things tough on his return to competitive tennis next week after seven months on the sidelines.
The Spaniard arrived in Santiago on Friday amid great expectation and was received by Chilean president Sebastian Pinera at his residence, La Moneda Palace.
Nadal, an 11-time Grand Slam winner, is preparing to take part in the ATP event in Vina del Mar, 120 kilometres to the west, next week.
He will team up with Juan Monaco in the doubles on Tuesday, before his singles return on Wednesday.
