Rafael Nadal He is going to offer a press conference at 1:45 p.m. where he is going to announce important news. In principle, the Balearic will say if he plays the next tournament of Wimbledonas well as the status of his foot injury.

US season after Wimbledon

I am a professional tennis player and I try to follow the calendar whenever possible. I will do my best to get there well prepared. Normally what I have done is play the first week of the Masters 1,000, in Canada, and then decisions are made. At the moment it has worked well for me and I am not a friend of changing what works well. My intention is to play Wimbledon, rest, then Canada and then the US Open.

next fatherhood

“I don’t expect fatherhood to mean a change in my professional life”

Possibility of achieving the Grand Slam

“The last one was Rod Laver more than 40 years ago. It’s hard to think I could do it at 36 years old.”

Expectations for Wimbledon

“The sensations are good, playing Roland Garros well helps confidence level, but grass is a different surface and there is little logic. But I haven’t played on grass for three years and it will be complicated. The first rounds will be crucial. If you pass them the rivals They are more difficult, but you play with more security. The first games you play with people with recent experience on these courts and it’s a bit of a lottery”.

“Tennis is a fairly unpredictable sport. There has been a time with things a bit predictable because in recent years three or four players have fought for important tournaments but it is not logical. Let us remember that someone who did not win had won in Hertogenbosch.” I had won a match. More unexpected things happen. It’s the shortest season of the year, Wimbledon is the tournament with the fewest references.”

Illusion for Wimbledon

“I haven’t played Wimbledon for three years and I’m excited. I don’t know what can happen in five days, I’m cautious, but what has happened so far gives me hope that he can be present.”


“My intention is to play Wimbledon. The treatment and the week of training give me hope, and I wouldn’t go if I didn’t intend to play. Travel, play an exhibition at Hurlingham and do a week of training to see if it’s possible.”

Treatment of your foot injury

“What was done in Barcelona, ​​that I was twice, is not a 100% immediate thing, but changes are immediately noticeable. Somehow the joint pain that did not allow me to support myself has decreased. one part, sometimes another and sometimes I feel ramps in the plant. But in a few weeks everything is reorganized. I’m happy. I haven’t been lame for a week.”

First impressions are positive. The tennis player from Manacor has been training on clay for five days, with sparring partners like the junior Martn landaluce or Feliciano himself Lopezwhich has joined the ‘stage’ these days.

Rafael Nadal is training in the Majorca Country Club of Santa Ponaa club that reproduces the conditions of Wimbledon and that is usually chosen -although this year is its second edition- by some favorites in the tournament to carry out their preparation. Last year it was won by the now number 1 in the world Daniil Medvedev.

After participating in Roland Garros, where he played undercover, Nadal underwent a radiofrequency injection treatment in the affected area.
