Rafael Nadal back on practice court as Spaniard recovers from abdominal injury

At the Canadian Open, which starts on August 5 in Montreal at the IGA Stadium, Nadal is expected to make his professional return.

Rafael Nadal is back in practice courts. After taking more than a month off to heal from the abdominal injury he sustained at Wimbledon 2022, Nadal returned to the court on Monday. Early next month, the Spaniard expects to return to the ATP tour. Rafael Nadal is anticipated to compete in his first professional match at the Canadian Open, which gets underway on August 5 in Montreal at the IGA Stadium.

Following the withdrawal, Nadal travelled back home for medical attention. He has now started practising again in an effort to make an ATP comeback. Nadal’s first practise session was observed on the court on Monday.

Rafael Nadal Injury sustained in Wimbledon

During his Wimbledon campaign, where he made it to his third straight semi-final, Nadal sustained the ailment. But during the nerve-wracking five-set match in the quarterfinals, the 36-year-old had worsened the injury, leading to a reported 7 millimetre rip.

Before his semifinal match, Nadal was compelled to quit, eliminating his chances of winning the SW19 three times, winning the 23rd major, and completing the Calendar Year Grand Slam.

Rafael Nadal back in Action!


Eugene Lapierre, Canadian Open Tournament Director on the tournament and Nadal

“Nadal really wants to come to Montreal and his hotel rooms are already booked. He was sent a crate of balls to use during the tournament to prepare. Nadal should return to training on Monday.”

He later mentions on the upcoming Canadian Open.

“We will have a great tournament. All the best players will be there except for two and we know the reasons for their absence. Either the Canadian government is going to change the rules regarding vaccination or he is going to roll up his sleeves and get the vaccine. But I don’t think any of those scenarios are realistic.”

Lapierre has also stated that Novak Djokovic’s lack of vaccinations makes it doubtful that he will be granted a participation exemption.
