Rafael Nadal’s Injury: Updates on His Wrist and Recovery

Rafael Nadal continues recovery from wrist injury on holiday with girlfriend Maria Francisca Perello  (8)

Reuters – Rafael Nadal is recovering well from a left wrist injury and is on track to compete at the Olympics in Rio, his doctor said on Tuesday.

“We are all working towards getting him ready for the Olympics,” Angel Ruiz-Cotorro, a doctor at the Spanish Tennis Federation, told AS newspaper.

“I see him strong. He is following the normal recovery schedule and meeting the timeframe we set. He is working very well and the sooner he can recover and start to compete the better it will be for him to get into a rhythm. But we have to be careful. He is strengthening the wrist and that is the most complicated aspect and where we have to be more careful,” he added.

Rafa is expected to return to play at the Toronto Masters at the end of July before traveling to Brazil.

  1. Rafa retweeted a @BancoSabadell tweet announcing a contest for entrants to win tennis racquets signed by the champ.
    The contest will end August 21. Details are on Rafa’s Twitter account tweets. I didn’t check the @BancoSabadell account. Good luck all. GET ALL THE RAFA FANS YOU KNOW TO ENTER. SOUNDS LIKE FUN


  2. I can’t believe what I just read. According to TennisWorldUSA and Yibada, Rafa is not sure he will play in Toronto. He is quoted as saying he is going day-by-day, and being ready is a priority. Rafa is adamant about participating in Rio so even if his wrist is off 1%, Toni said Rafa will not play Toronto. He is still healing, Rafa said.

    I was wishing that I was wrong regarding the amount of time needed for Rafa to heal. Tennis is Rafa’s joy so I know how it pains him not to be playing.
