Rafael Nadal is back! The Spanish tennis player suffered a serious psoas muscle injury during the 2023 edition of the Australian Open and he has not returned since that moment. Nadal has been out since the Melbourne Slam, specifically from the match for the second round against the American MacKenzie McDonald.

From that moment on, the injury took longer and longer and Rafa never took the court again. There was even talk of retirement but fortunately Nadal will return to the court: now it's official. As reported by Tennis Channel, Rafael Nadal officially revealed he will come back to the court at the ATP 250 tournament in Brisbane, his first event in over a year.

Rafa will thus test his condition in view of the Australian Open 2023 and evaluate his chances. Nadal's dream is to become competitive again and, perhaps, try to win the Roland Garros, the tournament that made him famous and where he won 14 times, consequently inserting him into the history of the sport.

Nadal can't wait and in the last few minutes he posted a video on social media relating to his injury. Below you can watch the video posted on X by the Spanish tennis champion:

Rafa is ready to return, he leaves behind an exciting 2023

The tennis season has officially come to an end and the Tour is already thinking about next season.

Many things have changed since the beginning of the year, several young talents have exploded, while things at the top have not changed. The number 1 in the world is always the Serbian champion Novak Djokovic, a tennis player who legitimized his status by winning three Grand Slam titles and the ATP Finals in Turin.

With this season, more and more people think that Nole is the true GOAT of this sport. In the usual challenge for Grand Slam titles Djokovic has 24 Slams against Rafael Nadal's 22 and Roger Federer's 20. The Swiss champion retired over a year ago while Rafa was the real absentee of this 2023.
