Tests show Rafael Nadal is recovering quickly from wrist injury, looks hopeful for US Open- View: 8943 by Talha Asif
Spanish Tennis Federation has shared that recent tests have shown that their star player Rafael Nadal’s recovery process from the wrist injury is going in right direction.
Nadal, who suffered an injury to his right wrist during a practice session in his home town one week ago, travelled to Barcelona to have some medical tests conducted. Spanish Tennis Federation wrote on its official website afterwards: “Following a scan and clinical evaluation, his progress is on track, although he will still have tests from time to time.” The news of Nadal’s injury came as a huge disappointment as it happened right before start of the two Masters 1000 events, Rogers Cup and Western and Southern Open, which are also tune up events for last Grand Slam of the season, the US Open.
On top of that, the Spaniard had won both these events last year so he had to defend both of his titles and 2000 ranking points. However, Nadal was not disappointed as much as his fans as he started training just few days after the news broke about his injury.
The Spaniard revealed that he was wearing a splint on his right wrist but practising with his left hand, which is also his stronger hand as he is a lefty.
The 14-time Grand Slam winner posted another picture on his Facebook page on Monday in which he could be seen training.
The Spanish fighter wrote this caption under that picture: “Training these days, always optimistic.” The 28-year-old shared a video on his Facebook and Twitter accounts on Wednesday in which he could be seen training in great spirit (Read full story here).
It would not be an exaggeration if we call Nadal the comeback king. He stayed away from the Tour for seven months in 2012 and 2013 but then made a great comeback, winning two Grand Slams and five ATP World Tour Masters 1000 titles till the end of 2013 and it was not the first time that the Spanish star has a super successful comeback from an injury break.
It is being hoped that the he will achieve similar results this time as well. ALSO READ: I believe I can win another Grand Slam: Roger Federer Maria Sharapova ´I would probably not play a Grand Slam mixed doubles, even though Grigor wants to´
