"I think he will be there" - Toni Nadal on Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon
Wimbledon is less than 3 weeks away and Toni Nadal is fairly optimistic that Rafael Nadal will be able to be there. Rafa was last spotted arriving in Mallorca from Barcelona after undergoing a novel treatment on his foot. He was unable to walk without crutches.
Despite that, Uncle Toni feels he'll be there:
“Wimbledon starts in less than two weeks, so let’s see if my nephew is there or not. I think that he will be and that the treatment goes well. He wants to take advantage of the good sporting moment that he is going through and that has led him to be the winner of the two Grand Slams. He has had to overcome many difficulties and is still there despite having already won many things and being very successful. Since 2005, he has been playing with a lot of pain to the point of sometimes being unable to finish a training session.”
Toni stressed that it will be at least a few days before the results of the treatment are revealed, with the world no.4 facing a race against the clock to be fit in time.
