London lawn awaits: Rafael Nadal points out “I’m going to play” at Wimbledon



Rafael Nadal, who won 22 Grand Slam titles, “in principle” confirmed that he would be competing in the Wimbledon Open, a tournament that won twice (2008 and 2010).

Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal confirmed at a press conference this Friday at the Mallorca Country Club in Santa Ponsa that he will play the Wimbledon tournament “in principle” from June 27th to July 10th.

“According to what I did (in Mallorca) and my feelings (about his chronic left leg injury), I can play at Wimbledon. I traveled to London on Monday and We will have an exhibition match, “said a man born in Manacor.

“Training here this week tells us what he might play,” he added.

“I travel (to London) because I’m going to play, but later I’ll see what happens if things don’t go the way I want. My” plan “is to travel to London. , Training there for a week, holding an exhibition and getting as prepared as possible, “said the winner of the 22 Grand Slam titles.

Nadal, who has been training on the Mallorca Club’s natural grass court since last Monday, has not participated in the Wimbledon tournament since 2019.

The Spaniards have won twice in London (2008 and 2010). The London tournament will be marked this year by a ban that applies to male and female tennis players from Russia and Belarus due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

“I haven’t played an official match on the grass for three years,” Nadal recalled.

“The first day is more complicated. I have a week of training left in London. Hopefully everything will help make the tournament more competitive, but the grass is very It’s a difficult surface. There’s little logic. If you haven’t played on the grass for three years, the first round will be complicated. Experience has shown that it’s important to overcome (in the first match), and that’s it. You have to survive, “Nadal said.

When asked if he had won all four Grand Slams this year, he replied: Djokovic was so close last year that it would be difficult for me to do it if no one had done it since then.

Mallorca tennis players also announced that they plan to play in Wimbledon, take a break for a week and then “hopefully” play in Canada and the United States.

Nadaru confessed that he was “happy” because he noticed a positive evolution in the injury.

“After treating myself in Barcelona, ​​to be honest, I soon noticed a change, a little strange sensation. Somehow, the joint pain that couldn’t support me decreased. So something strange happens to your feet. Sometimes you fall asleep and sometimes you have a lamp on the sole of your foot, but that seems normal. I hope things go well. I’m happy because I wasn’t lame for a week, it’s very important to me. I have to wait a few weeks to see how everything evolves. ” , “Rapha” was specified.
