The Spanish Rafael Nadal He made his intentions clear and, incidentally, cleared up all the doubts he had when publishing on his social networks that he is already on Australia, in Melbourne, where the ATP 250 of that city is played and then, from January 17 to 30, the first Grand Slam of the season, the Australian Open.
As soon as he landed on oceanic lands, the Spanish champion went to the track of the Melbourne Park and posted a photo on Twitter with a clear message: “Don’t tell anyone … here I am”.
After having tested positive for coronavirus when he returned from his participation in an exhibition tournament in Abu Dhabi, there were doubts about his presence in the Australian tour for the recovery and its possible aftermath. With this photo and this phrase, Nadal closed any possible speculation on the matter.
At the United Arab Emirates tournament, which was his return to the slopes after his six-month and foot injury, Nadal he lost to Scotsman Andy Murray (6-3 and 7-5) and Canadian Denis Shapovalov (6-7, 6-3 and 10-6).
In the ATP 250 Nadal will seek the best possible sensations, on the same stage as the Australian Open, in order to try to add a new Grand Slam to his record.
