Rafael Nadal Set to Return to Action in Barcelona Tournament After Injury Break

Rafael Nadal is about to make a comeback after a months-long injury break. According to the organizers of the ATP tournament starting next week in Barcelona, ​​the winner of 22 Grand Slam tournaments in the Catalan metropolis will meet the Italian Flavio Cobolli in his opening match.

Nadal had to end his season early last year due to hip problems. At the beginning of the year he was eliminated in the quarter-finals in Brisbane and has not played a match since. Several attempts by the 37-year-old to return to the tour failed due to a thigh injury. Most recently, the 2008 Olympic champion had to cancel his originally planned participation in the current ATP Masters in Monte Carlo because “my body doesn’t allow it.”

Barcelona is considered an important preparatory tournament for the French Open (May 20th to June 9th). Nadal had dominated the Grand Slam in Paris for years in the past and had already won it 14 times.
