Rafael Nadal is determined to make up for the 10 days of preparation lost due to the positivity to COVID-19 and the obligation of quarantine pending negativization. The Spaniard, as soon as he came out of isolation, shortened the time and immediately flew to Australia to guarantee his participation in the ATP 250 tournament in Melbourne, which will serve him a lot to prepare for the great Australian Open event again in January.
The Spanish tennis player is intensifying training on hard courts at the Rod Laver Arena, suggesting that he wants to reach the first Grand Slam of the 2022 season in perfect condition and with ambition. The number 6 in the world ranking will try to be the first to overcome the quota of 20 Major titles : the rivals will be Roger Federer, out for the whole first part of the year, and Novak Djokovic, not yet sure of taking part in the Australian Open.
