22 time Grand Slam winner Rafael Nadal is set to return to the BNP Paribas Open for the first time since 2022. The Spanish legend has been struggling with multiple injuries over the past couple of years. During that period Nadal has had to withdraw from many tournaments due to his fitness issues. The 37-year-old will be looking to get some momentum going in order to start playing regularly on tour again. However, at his age, it will be difficult to keep going for too long as a career in sports goes on for just a limited amount of time.

Nadal’s last ventures on the big stage

After a year-long absence due to injury, Rafael Nadal made his comeback at the Brisbane International in January 2024. He won his first games back against Dominic Thiem and Jason Kubler but a nagging injury forced him to lose the quarter-final. Despite the setback, his fighting spirit and first-round victory offer hope for a successful return.

Future tournaments and potential goals

If all goes well for Rafael Nadal in terms of his fitness at the Indiana Wells Masters then he will begin to work towards the Roland Garros in May. Nadal infamously known as the king of clay has won the French Open a record 14 times. Out of all the surfaces clay is the one where you cannot play without full fitness. Wimbledon will be up next and Nadal would want to bring his best version to the legendary tournament.

At this stage, it is given that another major injury may be the end of the road for Rafael Nadal which is why fans will be looking to enjoy the great man in the limited time he has left on the court. Long time rival Novak Djokovic will also take part in the tournament and it will be a cracker if the two giants face off on the big stage once again.
