Rafa Nadal’s return is getting closer Video

Rafael Nadal is progressing in his recovery and accelerating the countdown to his planned return to the BrisbaneAustralia Tournament, from December 31 to January 7, as published on social media, with images of new training sessions.

Eleven days after his return to active sport, after almost a year of absence from tournaments due to a Psoas injury in his left leg, the Spaniard showed himself at high speed on the track alongside the Finn Emil Ruususuvori, 69th in the world rankings, on the Rafa Nadal Academy, in Manacor.

Nadal starts the new season in Brisbane, where he will play for the second time in his career. The Balearic tennis player competed only once in this event in 2017 in the 250 category, losing to Canadian Milos Raonic in three sets.

The 22-time Grand Slam winner played his last match on January 18 when he failed in the second round against American Mackenzie McDonald and has since continued his recovery from a second-degree iliopsoas injury to his left leg, for which he underwent surgery.

The tennis player underwent an arthroscopic procedure on June 2 due to an injury to the left psoas tendon. At the Teknon Clinic in Barcelona he was seen by doctors Marc Philippon, Jaume Vilaró and Angel Ruiz-Cotorro, and an old labrum injury to his left hip was also regularly treated. The estimated time for his recovery at the time was five months.
