The 26-year-old Nadal will go on the nearby coastal resort capital of scotland- Vina del Mar, where he'll play as part of his first event since losing inside second round of Wimbledon in June.
'' Nadal is just about the best clay-court players within the history of the overall game.
''It is often months - seven months - since I've competed,'' Nadal said.
'' Nadal has appearances to create before he opens play, including a meeting with Chilean President Sebastian Pinera, who's going to be a huge fan.
Nadal's first test will come Tuesday in the doubles match with Juan Monaco, accompanied by his opening match Wednesday in singles.
