Master in Sports Journalism, I have loved tennis since childhood and have always loved reading great stories about this sport. Today I want to tell them about them, take full advantage of my passion and be as close as possible to the aces of the wheel.

Returning to the competition after a year's absence at the beginning of January in Brisbane, Rafael Nadal had to go to the hospital again and from now on he will have to prepare as well as possible for his return to Indian Wells, the first Masters 1000 of the year. The Majorcan just suffered another heavy blow, the one who thought he was ready for Doha. We will therefore have to wait a little longer, but the news is not very reassuring. According to the latest information, he will take stock of the rest of his career before Roland-Garros.

A victim of a muscle tear during his return to Brisbane for his third match, Rafael Nadal has announced that his absence will not last long.

What I feel is that I don't have much left to play,” he explains. We learn that a decision on his future is expected before Roland-Garros.

The last bouquet at the Games?

If 2024 is indeed Rafael Nadal's last year, where will the Spaniard decide to end his immense career? “I am not sure that I am 100%, but Roland-Garros is one of my goals, and I would like to participate in Paris in 2024,” he says. If he manages to go beyond Roland-Garros, a final appearance at the Olympics would be a distinctly unique moment. A priori, there is no question of playing every tournament on the farewell tour just to play the first round.

Still ambitions on earth

At almost 38, Rafael Nadal seems very close to the end and for good reason, at the moment it seems impossible to see him winning another trophy. However, he wants to prepare well for the clay court season, for which he has a secret. Before that, his next outings will be closely watched, he who showed a high level of play in Brisbane…
