Tennis News: Rafael Nadal Updates Fans On His Rehab

Rafael Nadal

The 2023 tennis season is underway, and tennis fans are sad that they have not seen much of Rafael Nadal on the courts.

He suffered a hip injury at the Australian Open in January and has not been heard from since except for the bad news posts about pulling out of events including the upcoming March tournaments, the Indian Wells Masters, also known as the BNP Paribas Open, and the Miami Open.

As luck would have it, Nadal must have read fans’ minds because he took to social media on Tuesday, February 28 to show us that he is working out and following his doctors’ orders on his rehab.

We see him doing upper and lower body exercises with machines so this is very good news and shows us he is on his way back.

When He Comes Back, He Will Be Out Of The Top 10

The bad news is when Nadal comes back later in the spring, he will be out of the Top 10 rankings.

That marks a first since he broke into the Top 10 in April 2005.

Is Nadal Getting Ready For The French Open?

We do not know exactly when Nadal plans to return, but we can only hope that he is devoting his time and energy to getting back to Roland Garros in late May.

Nadal is the 14-time (and the defending) French Open champion; his reign in Paris is so dominant that they built a statue of him on the grounds of Roland Garros.

While thoughts about the appearance of his Roland Garros statue vary, everyone agrees that Nadal is the “King of Clay”.

Best wishes to the 36-year-old Nadal as he continues to recover.

Fans look forward to seeing him slugging it out on the courts very soon and hopefully contending for a mind-boggling 15th French Open title which will further cement his greatness.
