When Rafael Nadal returns to competition, his lefty forehand should be dialed in.

Last week the ATP's No. 2 withdrew from the Rogers Cup and next week's Western & Southern Open due to a right wrist injury he sustained in practice. But that hasn't kept him off the practice courts (the U.S. Open is just three weeks away) -- with his right wrist immobilized in a splint, the Spaniard is still hitting the cover off of the ball with his forehand. 

Here's a closeup of Nadal's splint, courtesy of his Facebook page.
