Rafael Nadal is set to miss the Australian Open 2024

The 2024 ATP season finished on a high note. Not because of Djokovic’s dominating performances but after the news of Nadal’s return to the court. Rafael Nadal had announced that he would be competing in the 2024 Brisbane Open. And yes, he made his comeback by defeating Dominic Thiem and Jason Kubler at the 2024 Brisbane Open.

Sadly, he lost to Jordan Thompson in the quarterfinals and was out of the tournament. It was a great contest between both players, but Thompson had the upper hand in the final set. Well, the reason was that Nadal had a muscle tear during the game.

Rafael Nadal tweeted:

Nadal will be out of the game for at least two months. As mentioned above, he wants to be 100% fit and be at his best in the upcoming months.
