He’s giving more quotes about Rafa’s status…
. “He is not playing tennis. He only touched his racket the week before Wimbledon, for training and exhibition games,” Nadal’s spokesman Benito Perez-Barbadillo told the German Press Agency dpa.
Nadal is working hard and with great dedication to return to the tour, but he is also trying to relax an exhausted mind. That is why he plays golf whenever he can, that is why he recently spent two days aboard a yacht in the Mediterranean.
But his priority is to return to tennis – as soon as possible, but also avoiding a relapse in his knee injury.
“Rafa is in Manacor alongside his physiotherapist and his physical trainer, working intensely on his recovery. That recovery was pushed to try to make it to Wimbledon, but Rafa was not ready for it either physically or mentally, especially mentally,” Perez Barbadillo admitted.
