Rafael Nadal prepares his last dance. Still recovering from his psoas operation in June, the Spaniard hopes to resume training in November before his big return to the field. The winner of 22 Grand Slams, who has not played since January 18 during the first round of the Australian Open (defeat in three sets against MacKenzie McDonald), hopes to return for the Melbourne tournament according to his uncle. “Rafa is doing well, he is recovering. If all goes well, he wants to return to the courts for the Australian Open in 2024,” Toni Nadal confirmed to the media ElDesmarque de Cuatro.
At 37 years old, the Taurus of Manacor has the ambition of having a final full season, ideally until the Paris Olympic Games. In a twist of fate, the tennis event will be played in his garden, at Roland-Garros, where he has won 14 times. A unique meeting for “Rafa”, who will undoubtedly do everything possible to participate 100%.
