Nadal, who is in rehabilitation, withdrew from participating in exhibition games in March. Will the return time be delayed?

Spanish media reported that Rafael Nadal (Spain) withdrew from participating in ‘The SLAM’ (March 5), an exhibition game held in Las Vegas, USA.  

This year, 36-year-old Nadal suffered a left hip injury after meeting Mackenzie MacDonald (USA) in the second round of the Australian Open singles, which he competed as the defending champion. After the game, Nadal reported on his official social media account that “it takes 6 to 8 weeks to fully recover”, and that the additional test results in Barcelona, ​​Spain, received a week later, said, “The period remains unchanged.” 카지노사이트

Nadal announced on his social media last December that he would have an exhibition match with former world champion Carlos Alcaras (19) in Las Vegas next March, but his left hip injury ruined all plans.  

“It’s very unfortunate that I won’t be able to attend this wonderful event with Carlos (Alcaras) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Unfortunately, given my recovery, I don’t think I’ll be ready to play,” Nadal said.

“Perhaps I will have to look for other opportunities to play at this event. I would like to thank the fans and event organizers for their support and willingness to understand.”

Due to Nadal’s absence, ‘The SLAM’ changed the playing format. Taylor Fritz (USA) and Francis Tiafoe (USA) will have the first match, and the winner will face Carlos Alcaras in the championship match.

As Nadal confirmed his absence from The SLAM, it seems difficult to participate in the BNP Paribas Open (Indian Wells), the Masters 1000 tournament to be held from March 8th. In some cases, the possibility of delaying the comeback until the clay season, which starts in April, cannot be denied.
