Rafa Nadal trains in Barcelona ahead of a possible return

The Spanish tennis player Rafa Nadal made contact and practice this Wednesday on the court that bears his name at the Real Club de Tenis Barcelona, ​​home of the Conde de Godó Trophy that will be held next week, with the hope that it could be his return.

The champion of 22 ‘greats’ continues his physical recovery in search of returning to the slopes in a 2024 that is not going as he would like. The man from Manacor returned in Brisbane after a blank 2023, suffered a muscle injury and since then, in January, has not played again, removing the exhibition in Las Vegas against Carlos Alcaraz.

Nadal had to give up Doha and Indian Wells, thinking about the important European tour on dirt, where he has built his successful career. However, last week he also withdrew from the Monte Carlo Masters 1,000, a tournament of which he is an 11-time champion. “My body simply won’t let me,” said the Spaniard.

A week later, Nadal attempts his comeback again, as evidenced by his trip to Barcelona and his ‘hands on’ as soon as he lands. The 12-time champion in Barcelona trained at the Rafa Nadal Court in search of the optimal sensations and conditions to play again, in a tournament that also favors him.

Not so Madrid, due to his height, although the Balearic Islands’ calendar is undoubtedly conditioned by some muscular discomfort that, recently, he confessed that hinders him in the movement of the serve. If he finds himself fit, Nadal will have to decide if he bets on the Mutua Madrid Open and/or the Masters 1,000 in Rome, with the clear objective of Roland Garros, a French ‘great’ who has won 14 times.

«Hello from Barcelona. First training session with the hope of being here these days before the start of the tournament. I’m here to see how it goes… with the desire to try to play. I’ll tell you about it. It’s important to say that I don’t want to confirm that I will play, I hope so. “We’ll see,” Nadal wrote on his ‘X’ social network account, with his fingers crossed in closing, after his training session.
