Rafael Nadal reassured everyone about his state of health after his retirement in Miami against Damir Dzumhur because of extreme heat. The Spaniard confirmed on Twitter to be back home, feeling good and thanked everyone for all the messages of support.
Rafa was back in Mallorca on Sunday afternoon to spend Easter with his family.
He will start practicing again in a few days' time on clay in order to prepare for the Masters 1000 in Monte Carlo which takes place from 10th to 17th April. In Monte Carlo Nadal won eight titles, from 2005 to 2012, while in 2013 he reached the final losing it to Novak Djokovic.
In 2014, he lost in the quarter-finals to David Ferrer and last year, was beaten by Djokovic in the semi-finals. He is feeling well but not everything seems to be perfect with his body: he had had his left hand wrapped in a bandage! The photo of him with his bandaged hand was taken at Camp Nou, Barcelona (ground of the Barcelona soccer club) where Rafa paid tribute to former footballer Johan Cruyff, who recently passed away due to cancer. 'Cruyff created a football school.
He takes a big part of the credit for what Barça are currently achieving,' said Nadal. While in Barcelona, Rafa also went to the Spanish Tennis Federation clinic where his doctor Angel Ruiz Cotorro works. He had a check-up and then removed the bandage.
'Ready for the clay tournaments,' Nadal then posted on Twitter, without mentioning the reason for his being bandaged. It has left us confused about why he had it in the first place. Photo Credits: Cristina Calderer
