Another setback for Rafael Nadal! “I don’t know what to do,”
Rafael Nadal is boycotting his home Masters 1000 event and a chance to compete for his fifth Caja Magica title because he is not prepared to compete in Madrid. Due to a left hip injury sustained in the second round of the Australian Open against Mackenzie McDonald, Nadal hasn’t played for three months.
Rafa lost in straight sets, appearing to struggle but still unwilling to give up after suffering a hip injury in the second. The Spaniard consented to additional examinations, which identified a Grade 2 iliopsoas that should have prevented him from using the court for two months.
Instead, a 22-time Major champion has missed seven events and his awful luck has continued as he has yet to heal and compete without an injury. Before withdrawing from Indian Wells and Miami and sliding out of the top-10 for the first time in almost 18 years, Nadal skipped Doha and Dubai.
After the Wimbledon of the previous year, Rafa only participated in 13 matches because to injuries and a lack of performance. Rafa hasn’t decided when he’ll play again, which makes the situation worse. He was expecting to play in Rome and acquire at least some momentum and confidence before his major objective, Roland Garros.
Rafael Nadal will not compete in Madrid, skipping a tournament for the sixth time straight.
“As you are aware, I had a bad hip injury in Australia. Initially, the recovery period had to last six to eight weeks; we are currently on week fourteen.
The situation is actually different from what we had anticipated, in actuality. Although every medical recommendation has been followed, the evolution is not what was initially predicted. As a result, we are placed in a challenging circumstance.

After a few weeks had passed, I was eager to participate in some of my favorite competitions, including those in Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Madrid, Rome, and Roland Garros. I have to leave Madrid after missing Barcelona and Monte Carlo. I’m still dealing with the injury, and I’m unable to figure out what I need to do to resume competing.
I started exercising, but a few days ago we decided to take a different path, try a different treatment, and see whether things got better before moving on to the next step. I am unable to provide timeframes since, if I did, I would inform you. This is the situation, according to Rafael Nadal.
