Rafa’s uncle and former coach, Uncle Toni Nadal spoke about this with El Desmarque, completely closing off this possibility.He explained: “Rafa is well and is recovering.

If all goes well, his goal is to return to the court at the next Australian Open. We will have to be very careful about his training pace and understand his condition.”Rafa Nadal will no longer play in 2023, his uncle has shed light on the latest rumors, extinguishing the hopes of Spanish fans.

A Davis that will see the groups played this week and that has seen a lot of controversy erupt in recent days.But in the meantime, his rivals, Novak Djokovic and his young countryman Carlos Alcaraz, have been warned. Rafa will not return to the court for a parade of honor.

Toni Nadal explains the reasons for Alcaraz’s defeat at the US Open
Toni Nadal also recently commented on Carlos Alcaraz’s defeat at the US Open, revealing the reasons for this unexpected knockout.

The Spaniard, reigning champion, fell in the semi-final against the Russian Daniil Medvedev and thus missed the grand final against Novak Djokovic.Here are the reasons according to Uncle Toni: “He was forced to change his strategy a bit because of how difficult it is to overpower Daniil from the baseline.

I think he did well by going to the net a lot, but it had a negative impact on the fact that was less successful than usual from the baseline, being less aggressive and making unusual errors.”
