“When I hit a new ball, my arm, I hurt in several places … my wrist, elbow, … When you’re out of action, the risk of injury is much greater when you exercise … “Rafael Nadal had said some time ago, the thought of his return on tour after a pandemic has subsided.
Rafael Nadal has a lot of fears, with the idea of playing in two grand Slams. Before the global crisis of health, Rafael Nadal is in search of a way to capture the many tournaments and major tournaments. He had won the French Open on Dominic Thiem, the Rogers Cup and the united States.
Open against Daniil Medvedev. Go ahead and win the Mexico Open, his third title in his career on NextGen Taylor Fritz. But a fear that Nadal is back from inactivity and not compete, as he will soon, when you play in the united States.
Open. The lesion is in his mind, and uncle Toni has told the media that “the calendar is absurd, there are too many major tournaments in a couple of weeks … the calendar is going up against veteran players with the most titles”.
There is also the idea not to do it also in addition of injury. The Spanish to defend their titles in both Slams and you’re not sure to be able to accomplish that feat. He had won the title of the French Open last year, on Dominic Thiem in four sets difficult.
The idea of winning both again after this long absence will begin to be questionable. “You don’t have 20 years … your physical and mental well-being are the first priority …”, said her coach Carlos Moya.

The Citi Open in Washington DC will be the next tournament, who knows, will be the principal players or participants now. Previously, the Volvo Open in Charleston has been reformatted to be in the Credit of A Bank Invitational and included the best 16 players and the teams that proved to be a success.
Are also form other tournaments in the united States, which are having positive effects. But for the best 4 or 5 players, not only on the side of men but also of women, many have decided not to risk it until next year.
Novak Djokovic, Ashleigh Barty and Simona Halep have had negative thoughts about the idea. At this point, those hidden fears Rafael Nadal still prevail and the result will definitely not be an advantage for the fans and the promoters.
