TENNIS ace Rafa Nadal has been in the Bahamas watching Tiger Woods making his comeback.

Nadal, who held off from pre-season training to allow his knee more time to recover, stopped in to watch Woods at his Hero World Challenge at Albany.

Woods came joint ninth scoring eight under par and beat the No.1 player in the world by eight strokes.

Nadal has returned to training in Mallorca, with the Mubadala World Tennis Championship in Abu Dhabi his first scheduled event of the season on December 28.
