Nadal is not having a 2023 single and after that iliopsoas injury at the Australian Open he was hoping to return on the clay tour.
Rafa wants to continue competing and expanding his legacy, but for this he needs to be one hundred percent. Nadal has cast doubt on his presence in the third Masters 1000 of the season, after having to miss the first two due to said injury.
