Toni Nadal reveals Nadal is back training: "His goal is to return to the tour at the 2024 Australian Open"

Toni Nadal has revealed that former world number one Spain’s Rafael Nadal is eyeing a return to action in the Australian Open 2024.

The 37-year-old has been out of action from tennis for a long time after suffering from injuries.

It was because of this reason he missed three out of the four Grand Slams in 2023.

Toni was quoted recently in a report where he stated that Nadal is expecting a return to the highest level in January next year.

“He is training and his goal is to return to the tour at the 2024 Australian Open,” said the 62-year-old.

Nadal is termed as one of the greatest players—if not the greatest—in the history of men’s singles tennis in the Open era.

The Mallorca-born won 22 Grand Slam titles in his career, just behind current world number one Serbia’s Novak Djokovic who has won 24 major titles.

Nadal’s most successful competition has been the French Open where he has won 14 titles, the most by any player in the tournament’s history.

His first victory in a big tournament came in 2005 when he defeated Mariano Puerta of Argentina in the final at the Roland Garros with a score of 6–7(6–8), 6–3, 6–1, 7–5.

His last triumph at a Grand Slam also came in Paris last year where he got the better of Norway’s Casper Ruud in straight sets with a score of 6–3, 6–3, 6–0.
