David Ferrer said Rafael Nadal could come back sooner!

The surgery suffered in early June could further postpone his return to the court but Rafael Nadal's goal is come back to the Davis Cup at the end of 2023 to prepare in the best possible way for next season. In the special conference convened before the start of the Roland Garros, the Spanish champion had explained: "In the last few months I've tried everything to come back but I couldn't do it.

I didn't enjoy myself in training or on the court. I have to give my body time to recover. I can't give a return date. I would like to come back at the end of the year for the Davis Cup to play in good conditions in Australia." Will Nadal be back in the Davis Cup at the end of 2023? Ferrer's words Ruiz-Cotorro, the doctor who operated on Nadal together with Vilaró, spoke of at least another five months of hiatus without, however, completely shelving the Davis Cup track.

"In those five months there's a bit of everything, maybe after that we'll have to outline another month for it to take on even more shape and confidence. Everything is evolving, we will do some tests and from here we will make decisions, after all we are talking about the end of November." Speaking of the hypothesis of an official call-up, to the microphones of Eurosport, the new captain of the Spanish team David Ferrer took care of it directly: "Nadal called up? Maybe yes, for all that he can convey.

Even without being 100%, Nadal is a special player. He can pass on a lot to other tennis players and is very strong on the pitch. You can always trust him with his ability to suffer." However, Spain will have to earn access to the Finals of the most important team tournament: they will face Serbia, the Czech Republic and South Korea in Group C next September.

A group that could become even more complicated if Novak Djokovic decides to be part of the Serbian team. The Belgrader has not yet released any statements on the matter.
