Rafael Nadal has taken to social media to reveal that he has been “training hard” with Richard Gasquet ahead of the 2015 season.

The Spaniard is back on court after undergoing surgery to remove his appendix, which ruled him out of the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals in London.

Nadal, 28, is now looking to regain full fitness ahead of the Australian Open in Melbourne next month.

He posted the picture above on his Facebook page on Thursday morning, showing him looking relaxed with Gasquet and his trainer Sergi Bruguera.

Nadal wrote: “Training hard this week with Richard Gasquet and his trainer, Sergi Bruguera!”

Meanwhile, Nadal signed a deal to become the latest face for Tommy Hilfiger’s underwear and tailored ranges.

The first campaign starring Nadal will be shot in early 2015 in his native Spain, with the images breaking online and in print worldwide in autumn.

“Rafael Nadal has been a longtime personal friend and supporter of our brand, and I’m continuously inspired by his dedication and passion for his sport,” said Tommy Hilfiger.

“Rafael embodies an effortless sense of style that exemplifies and reflects our brand spirit – he’s confident, fun and cool.”
