Rafael Nadal has confirmed that he will be out for six to eight weeks with his leg injury that he suffered during his defeat to Mackenzie McDonald at the Australian Open.
“Good afternoon. I have carried out medical tests after the defeat yesterday,” Nadal said on social media. “The MRI shows a grade 2 lesion in the Iliacus Psoas of his left leg. Now it’s sports rest and anti-inflammatory physiotherapy. Normal recovery time 6 to 8 weeks.”
Set to return in Dubai at the end of February, it is now likely that he won't play until Indian Wells or Miami during the Sunshine Double and will fall out of the top five in the rankings after the Australian Open.

Buenas tardes. He realizado pruebas médicas tras la derrota en el día de ayer. La resonancia magnética muestra una lesión grado 2 en el Psoas Iliaco de su pierna izquierda. Ahora toca reposo deportivo y fisioterapia anti inflamatoria. Tiempo normal de recuperación 6 a 8 semanas.
