Rafael Nadal defeated Emil Ruusuvuori 6-4, 7-5 to reach the final of the Melbourne Summer Set, where he is set to face qualifier Maxime Cressy on Sunday.

After a first-round bye, the Spaniard defeated Ricardas Berankis 6-2, 7-5 in the second round. His next opponent, Tallon Griekspoor, withdrew before their scheduled quarterfinal clash, handing the former World No. 1 a walkover into the semifinals.

Nadal is currently making his comeback from a recurring foot injury, which saw him end his 2021 season in August.

The 35-year-old did compete at an exhibition event in December prior to this, where he lost both his matches. However, Nadal tested positive for COVID-19 following the conclusion of the event, putting his plans for Australia in jeopardy. A speedy recovery ensured his comeback was on track.

Playing in his first professional tournament in over four months, the Spaniard is already in contention for another title. This is Nadal's 126th career final and first since winning the Italian Open in May last year. It's also his first final on hardcourts since winning the Mexican Open in February 2020.

This is also Nadal's first final at the ATP 250 level since January 2016, when he lost the Qatar Open final to Novak Djokovic.
