Toni Nadal has highlighted that Rafael Nadal wants to return only when he feels ready to do so. Nadal, who tore a hip muscle during the Australian Open, was aiming to return to action at the start of the clay season and play at the Monte Carlo Masters and Barcelona Open.

Unfortunately for Nadal, he was forced to skip Monte Carlo and Barcelona after feeling there was a risk of getting reinjured. Going into the French Open, there are a lot of question marks regarding Nadal's fitness. However, Uncle Toni remains confident that if Nadal arrives at the French Open healthy, he will have a shot at winning the French Open because "everything changes when he enters Philippe-Chatrier."

Uncle Toni: Nadal can win the French Open

“I spoke with him on Saturday.

And he will only come back if he is in good condition, 100%. He knows that otherwise it will not be good for him. He played the Australian Open without feeling at his best. I think he wants to feel very good. He would like to arrive at Roland‐Garros with confidence and good fitness.

For now, we have to wait. But he still has the mindset to try to win another time. I have said many times about Rafa that even if he does not arrive in very good conditions, when he enters the Philippe‐Chatrier court, everything changes.

He needs a few not-too-difficult matches to ramp up. I know Zverev, Alcaraz, Djokovic, Rune, Rublev are very strong. But with his mind, I also know that Rafa can win. I want to think the same this year," Toni Nadal said on RMC's Bartoli Time, via We Love Tennis.

Nadal's next target for a comeback is the Madrid Masters, which starts on April 26th. Last week, it was reported that Nadal could also skip Madrid. It remains to be seen if Nadal will be able to return to action at Caja Magica.
