Rafael Nadal has conceded he is not yet sure that he will be able to represent Spain at the Rio Olympics 2016 as his fitness concerns linger.

The 2008 gold medallist withdrew from the French Open with a wrist injury and missed Wimbledon.

"I will not be at the best level," Nadal said on Sunday. "I have not competed for two months and I have not trained a lot. I will train [for] a few days to see what I can do and then decide what is best."

Nadal's Spanish team-mate David Ferrer said last week that the 14-time grand slam champion's fitness situation was "delicate".

Nadal, who is due to be Spain's flag bearer, was absent from the 2012 Olympics due to injury. Roger Federer sits out due to a knee problem and Wimbledon finalist Milos Raonic withdrew citing fears over the Zika virus.
