2024 will be the year of Rafael Nadal's come back to the court, as well as, as he himself announced, his last year on the ATP Tour before retiring A few days ago Rafa announced via Instagram that he would soon reveal where he would return to playing tennis: "I confirmed yesterday I'll be back.

Stay tuned these days when I decide and announce with my team when and where." And the media, insiders and fans are very curious to know what the return date will be for the 22-time Slam champion, who recently declared that he feels well and is at a good point in his rehabilitation, but that he is not yet ready to compete.

And, many rumors coming from Spain say that Nadal is ready to announce in the next few hours where and when he will return to the court.

And Craig Tiley is still sure to see Nadal at the Australian Open 2024

Although the Spaniard has denied the official presence of him at the Australian Open, the CEO of the Australian Slam Craig Tiley, in a Reuters interview, assured everyone that the Spaniard will show up at the Rod Laver.

Tiley said he was quite convinced of the presence of the Majorcan tennis player at the first slam of the year. "Rafa trained, I followed him closely, practically every day, because he is a big attraction for our tournament.

Rafa wants to play, it's obvious that he intends to come here. It all depends on how he feels. I hope that next week or in two weeks we will have an official confirmation of his presence. I have the certainty that Rafa will be here, because he will not want to miss the opportunity to repeat what he did in Australia two years ago," assured the tournament director.

Tiley then also spoke about home favorite Nick Kyrgios, who has been plagued by injuries and has only appeared on court a couple of times in 2023. "We spoke to Nick, who obviously wants to do everything he can to have the chance to compete and play in the tournament of January.

Whatever he does, whether it's playing or anything else, it's clear we'll be counting on Nick in January. It would be great if he could play, but we have to take things as they come and he has to make sure he takes care of his health, which comes first," said Tiley, who hopes to see the Australian tennis player back on court soon, a guarantee of spectacle and entertainment.
