The British star posted a photo of himself on his Facebook page on court while yelling with a clenched right fist and the caption: "That feeling when you accept a wildcard for the singles in Cinci..."

"It's good news for the sport - and especially great news for him", Nadal said.

However, Murray described his latest operation, which has left him pain-free, as "life-changing" and he is now on the brink of completing a remarkable return to top-level singles action. That means that he's healthy.

The three-time major champion and former No. 1 hasn't played a singles match on tour since the Australian Open in January.

"That's going to be a big, big moment for him", Nadal told reporters in Montreal.

"After all the retirement that he predicted in Australia, was this year - yeah - six months later seems like he's back again, healthy, competing well".

Murray will face Richard Gasquet in the opening round and he holds an 8-3 win-loss record over the Frenchman. Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray are on the same half of the draw and can face each other after three years in the semifinals.

Murray began his comeback in June by playing doubles in the Fever-Tree Championships at Queen's Club and has continued to compete in the less demanding format, most recently in this week's Rogers Cup in Canada.

Nadal will play the victor of the rain-delayed quarter-final between Gael Monfils and Roberto Bautista Agut on Saturday night and the top seed in Montreal said he was pleased to be in with another chance to reach a final.
