“Rafael Nadal plays five days a week,” Barcelona Open director David Ferrer says the Spaniard is aiming to return in Monte Carlo Masters

Also, Monte Carlo Masters director David Massey revealed that Rafael Nadal, who is an 11-time champion, was the first player to sign up for the tournament.

Rafael Nadal has been battling injuries he picked up during the Australian Open 2023, which saw him ending his campaign against USA’s Mackenzie Mcdonald in the second round. And as he missed the Indian Wells and Miami Open Masters, he lost his spot in the top 10 for the first time since he first entered in 2005.

The 36-year-old is currently recovering from injuries and is expected to return to the court for the Monte Carlo Masters and the Barcelona Open, which he missed last year due to a rib injury he sustained during the Indian Wells.

Today I have been speaking with his representative and he is training on land.

Monte Carlo Masters tournament director says Rafael Nadal was the 1st player to sign up

Rafael Nadal last lifted the Monte Carlo Masters trophy back in 2018 when he defeated Kei Nishikori 6-3, 6-2 in the summit clash. But his last appearance in the tournament was in 2021 where he lost the quarter-final match to eventual champion Andrey Rublev.

Monte Carlo Masters director David Massey revealed that Rafael Nadal, who is an 11-time champion, was the first player to sign up for the tournament.

Rafa was the first player to sign up. He wants to play in Monaco and is giving himself every chance to be able to participate in this tournament that he loves so much, and which he has won eleven times in singles, including a record eight consecutive titles between 2005 and 2012,” Massey said.
