Spain’s legendary tennis star Rafael Nadal is now gearing up for a potential return to the court following a lengthy injury layoff.
The former world number one is currently spending time on the sidelines as he continues his recovery from a knee injury. It was because of this reason he ended up missing three out of the four Grand Slams this year.

In a video posted on his official Instagram account, Nadal showcased how he is preparing to return to high-profile tennis after a long break. His post caption was “As we start another week… we continue… Vamos! [Let’s go].”

His most successful competition is the French Open where he went on to win the title 14 times which is also a record in the tournament’s history.
