One of the greatest all-time players in tennis, Rafael Nadal, is set to make his comeback soon. He made a soft exit from tennis due to his injury and hasn’t entered the tennis court since then. Well, a few months ago, he said he would love to play in the 2024 Olympics, and maybe after that, he may announce his retirement from the game.
The Australian Open is one of the upcoming Grand Slam tournaments, followed by the French Open. As we all know, winning a Grand Slam tournament is every tennis player’s dream, and Rafael Nadal has won them 22 times. He has won every Grand Slam tournament at least twice, and Roland Garros has always had a special place for him.
Nadal fans have always expressed their love for him, and recently he shared a tweet on the X app (Twitter).
I appreciate the vote of confidence from the Australian Open… I am practising every day and working hard to come back asap 💪🏻😉
