"I don't know when I will play again" says Rafael Nadal on his recovery
The Australian Open is returning to his usual slot in the calendar (in January) as opposed to last year when it took place later and fans are hoping Rafael Nadal will be among the players taking part. The Spaniard has expressed willingness to return to tennis as soon as possible but he underlined a proper recovery as the most important thing.
During a ceremony in his native Mallorca, the Spanish ace shared an injury update with guests saying:
“I want to recover from this injury in good condition. I don’t know when I will play again, I work a lot every day, I follow a specific plan with a marked roadmap and with very clear objectives."
Nadal was not willing to share what his objectives were noting that sometimes things happen that one can't control. He explained in detail:
“I will not say what those objectives are, because there are always things that I can’t control one hundred per cent, but inside my head, I’m clear on what my objectives are and I trust that things will follow a positive course. I am in a process of recovery, of work, with a progressive increase in loads and the sensations are not measured daily."
