Director of the Montreal Masters 1000, Eugene Lepierre, has confirmed Rafael Nadal’s desire to play in this year’s tournament. In the semi-finals of Wimbledon, Rafael Nadal, 36, was forced to retire from his match against Nick Kyrgios because of an abdominal injury.
Nadal hopes to be fit for the Montreal Masters tournament, which takes place from August 7-14. On Monday, according to Lepierre, Nadal is expected to begin his preparation for the upcoming summer tour on the tennis court.. “Nadal is really looking forward to coming to Montreal and his hotel rooms have already been booked,” Lapierre said, according to the Daily Express.
“As he prepares for the tournament, they’ve sent him a box of balls. On Monday, he’ll be able to return to training.” Nadal held a press conference despite the fact that he was off from Wimbledon on Thursday. Everyone knew what was going to happen when Rafael Nadal called a press conference.
If I’m here, I have to withdraw from the tournament as you can imagine, right??” It was at Nadal’s post-announcement press conference that he revealed his decision to pull out of the Wimbledon semifinal. “I’ve been having a hard time dealing with the pain in my abdomen, as everyone saw on Monday.
Even though I’ve tried many times throughout my career to continue in extremely difficult circumstances, in this case I believe it’s obvious that the injury will worsen if I continue. All I can say at this point is that. My heart is breaking at the thought of having to say this.”
Nadal explained that he didn’t want to run the risk of aggravating his injury and being sidelined for an extended period of time as another reason for withdrawing.
A few words from Lopez on Nadal
With a tear in his eye and a tear in his abs from Rafael Nadal’s victory over Taylor Fritz in the fifth set super tiebreak before finally forfeiting his half to Nick Kyrgios, Feliciano Lopez once again expressed his admiration for his compatriot.
To put Rafa’s work into words has been difficult for some time. At 36, winning two Grand Slams in the circumstances he did is impossible to put into words, so you need to take advantage of the opportunity.
When he’s in peak physical condition, few other players can match him. Remarkably, “the superiority of Rafael and Djokovic over the other players is very great,” said the Spaniard of 40 years of age at the microphone of Radio Marca.
