Top-ranked Rafael Nadal will need 10 days to recover from a leg muscle injury sustained during his quarterfinal loss at the Australian Open.

A statement released Tuesday says a scan revealed Nadal tore a muscle in his right leg during last week's straight-sets defeat to fellow Spaniard David Ferrer.

The loss ended Nadal's hopes of holding all four Grand Slam titles at once.

Nadal is recovering on his home island of Mallorca. He is expected to be available for Spain's Davis Cup match against Belgium in March and Masters events at Indian Wells in California and Miami.
