World number one Rafael Nadal has been passed fit for the opening tie of Spain's Davis Cup defence.

Nadal, who currently holds all the Grand Slam titles except the US Open, missed last month's Dubai Championships due to a right leg injury.

But he has recovered in time to take his place alongside David Ferrer, Feliciano Lopez and Tommy Robredo in the Spanish line-up to take on Serbia from March 6-8 in Benidorm.

"Everybody's perfect. Nadal's 100 percent, everybody on the team is 100 percent healthy," said Spain captain Albert Costa.
