Rafael Nadal doesn't know when he'll be back, but we do: at the Roland Garros

Rafael Nadal is back to talk and he did it during the first leg semi-final of the Copa del Rey which took place at the Santiago Bernabeu between Real Madrid-Barcelona in the classic of Spanish football. The Majorcan tennis player, who hasn't played an official match since the second round of the Australian Open when he was defeated in three sets by the American Mc Donald, is still in the slow recovery phase from the bad injury he suffered during the Australian major.

Nadal, in an interview with Movistar, still doesn't know when he will officially return to play a tennis match: "I don't know if it will be Monte Carlo, I don't know if it will be Barcelona, if it will be Madrid, but I want to play, so when I can I'll be right back." Due to his renunciation of the first two 1000 of the season in Indian Wells and Miami, Nadal is about to leave the world top ten for the first time in 18 years.

"I'd rather be in the top-10, it's obvious, but in the end you have to accept things as they come. With all the injuries I've had in the last 18 years, I've never finished outside the top-10 it's practically a miracle. Many things have happened in the last year: a broken rib, two abdominal tears, now the psoas, foot problems...

there are many things that, in tennis, with a ranking that lasts a year... you know that if you don't you play, you are out of the top-10."

Rafael Nadal's troubles? At the Roland Garros it will be the usual robot

The twenty-two times Slam winner talked about his beloved clay courts, with the main objective of Roland Garros: "Now comes the clay season and we have to try to sum it up, but the important thing for me, above all, is try to be healthy, when I compete on clay I feel I can compete for what I want and fight for the ultimate goal, which right now has to be the Roland Garros." Nadal, who is slowly recovering from the injury, is carrying out all the necessary treatments in Manacor in his academy.

Rafael Nadal actually knows very well when he will return, if he has recovered from his physical problems. Age leftover or not, Djokovic or not Djokovic, the Spaniard wants his 15th title in Paris, and will do anything to be there.
