The tournament runs from December 27-29.

Nadal hasn't played since losing in the second round of Wimbledon in June. He is recovering from a partially torn patella tendon in his left knee.

Nadal said last month he had no timetable for his return and the 11-time Grand Slam champion hopes to play in the Australian Open in January. – Sapa-AP
