Rafael Nadal is getting prepared for the clay season, during which his primary goal will be to win his 23rd grand slam title at the French Open.
Spaniard has been struggling with a hip injury ever since Australian Open. In February, he was forced to withdraw from tournaments in Doha and Dubai, and later on, he announced that he would not participate in the first Masters tournaments of the season, Indian Wells and Miami.
“I’ve started rehabilitation and physiotherapy following the doctors’ instructions. We are getting prepared for a comeback at the best possible terms,” Rafa said and added:
“I’m sad that I will be unable to compete in Miami and Indian Wells. I will miss my fans from the United States, and I hope I’ll see them later on during the summer.”
Rafa is expected to return at the Masters in Monte Carlo, and then, he will likely participate in the tournaments in Barcelona, Rome, and Madrid. It is certain that his main goal will be his 15th Roland Garros and the record-breaking 23rd grand slam title.
