Versier: "Rafael Nadal's physical problem is not simple"

In recent days, tennis legend Rafael Nadal has amazed all fans and professionals with the renunciation of the US Open 2021 and the rest of the season in general. The Spanish champion came back to the court, after two months of absence, at the ATP 500 tournament in Washington, but he too came out in the second match showing he had various physical problems, especially a worrying foot problem.

This injury is not like the previous ones, it cannot be resolved with an operation and can seriously jeopardize the continuity of his career. This injury is not like the foot problem of 2005 but can cause severe damage to Nadal.
