Rafael Nadal went through some very difficult minutes on Wednesday morning at the Mallorca Open. The Spanish player's training sessions intensity is increasing more and more, and after hitting for a couple of days with his coach Carlos Moya, a former world No. 1, Nadal found a more "quality" partner, the world No. 87 Jaume Munar on Wednesday. It was just his third day of training on grass, and at one stage Nadal slipped on grass suffering an ankle twist.
He stayed on the ground for a little bit trying to make the pain decrease, and then he sit on the bench. At the beginning it seemed something serious, but Nadal was regularly able to be back practicing and hitting for a couple of hours in total with Munar.
If everything goes well, the world No. 2 will reach London on Sunday to continue his preparation for Wimbledon.
