The Swiss star has a chance to become the world number one if he reaches the semi-finals of the Rotterdam Open.

Federer is due on court on day two of the event when he faces Belgian qualifier Ruben Bemelmans tomorrow (9am).

If he does secure the honour then he would become the oldest ever player to hold the top spot aged 36.

But Nadal will have a chance to rise back to the top of the rankings when he returns to action at the Mexican Open at the end of the month.

And he has taken to Instagram on the eve of the Rotterdam event to warn his competitor that he will be hot on his heels.

The Spaniard plans on bouncing back from the Australian Open quarter-final exit with the help of a new racket.

Nadal posted a teasing image on Instagram of his new equipment which is hidden inside it’s box.

But through a small gap you can see the colours consist of black, green and red.

With the photo is a caption “something special is coming.”

The underlying message has been interpreted that he is hoping for another special year.

The 31-year-old won two Grand Slams last season and is desperate for similar success this campaign.

Nadal had to retire from the Australian Open through injury but he will return when the Mexican Open gets underway on February 26.
