After three weeks of vacations, the Spanish tennis player returns to the training thinking already in a demanding season in 2018.
Rafa Nadal continues with his rehabilitation
“I did not finish the season in the best possible way but I would have signed the year I’ve done before I started. My knee does not have to be ready now. The goal is within a month, he said Monday at the Telefonica Flagship Store in Madrid, where he presented a virtual reality game starring him.
Nadal explained that today he will return to training and will try to “do the right thing to be ready” for the start of the new course. “I finished the season with injuries and it takes time for me to recover well, this is why I took a few weeks off. I need to start over. I will try to play in Abu Dhabi, Brisbane and Australia . That would be the ideal situation and I will try to make it happen, “he said.
Despite premature goodbye in the Masters tournament, Nadal has signed a season to frame six titles, two of them “Grand Slam” at Roland Garros and the US Open , and the return to first place in the ranking in August and that he has managed to maintain until the end of the year. “We are in a world that is totally resultist and each one makes its way. When you feel that you have to do things one way and they do not go well then you have to make decisions when correcting them. This year I played 18 tournaments, which are very few, “added Rafael Nadal.
Everything went well
Out of the mandatory ones I played only three: Barcelona, Brisbane and Beijing. I have practically played only what the usual calendar sends, what happens is that many games have been played, and luckily everything went well, “he said. The player also spoke about the Swiss Roger Federer who highlighted his “fantastic year”. “It is a success on his part, what he has achieved is very difficult. Playing so little, having the ability to win practically every time you play again has a very big risk, “he said.
