The14-times Roland Garros winner and 22-two times Grand Slam title winner Rafael Nadal is now the most anticipated man on the season. The Spanish tennis player suffered an injury to the psoas muscle in the match valid for the second round of the Australian Open against the American tennis player MacKenzie McDonald and has not returned to the court since.
Initially, many predicted a stop of four or five weeks but things went much worse than expected and Rafa practically missed almost the entire clay court season. Many were waiting for him at the Internazionali d'Italia in Rome, but the Majorcan tennis player didn't make it and bitterly greeted the Italian crowd with a video: "Hello everyone, I'm sorry to announce that I won't be able to take part in the tournament Rome.
You all know how much it hurts me to lose another tournament that has marked my professional and personal career. I have no choice but to accept this situation and continue to work as I am doing." In the last few hours a somewhat terrible video has been around the web and has aroused much concern in view of Rafa's possible participation in Paris.
The chances that Nadal also misses the French tournament, a tournament where he defends the title, are increasing. In the video, as we see, Rafa is on his legs, touching his knees and seems very distressed, regretful and worried about his situation.
The nightmare is almost reality: it will be really difficult to see the Spanish tennis legend at his beloved Roland Garros. And, in the event that Rafa really manages to play in Paris, his physical conditions will have to be assessed.
And the images and sensations that leak out are very harmful. A very difficult situation and many fans are worried about the conditions of the Spanish tennis player, who has been out for too long. It should also be remembered that Rafa has already dropped in the standings and without Paris he would even sink out of the world Top 100. A difficult situation and the risk that these conditions bring retirement from professionalism closer.
