Rafael Nadal has confirmed he intends to play in this week's BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells following Saturday's win over David Ferrer in the final of the 2013 Abierto Mexicano Telcel.

Nadal was in sensational form against Ferrer, hammering the world No. 4 6-0 6-2 to take the ATP Acapulco title.

The current world No. 5 won the opening eight games against his compatriot and showed flashes of the brilliance that has long been his trademark on clay courts.

Although Indian Wells is a hard-court event, Nadal, who only recently returned from a seven-month layoff, believes he is ready to compete in the tournament.

"My knee responded well all week," he said.

"My heart tells me I should continue competing, that I need to move on to the next tournament."

Novak Djokovic, defending champion Roger Federer and Andy Murray are all scheduled to compete.
