Rafael Nadal Gives An Update On His Recovery

Earlier today, Rafael Nadal spoke at the offices of Spanish telecommunications company Telefonica in Madrid. Here’s what he had to say about his recovery from hand injury:

After what happened to my hand after the US Open, I was not able to practise or recover well. I need time to try to be ready for the future.

The year has been very good, despite a complicated start on a physical level. From Barcelona, I have been able to play all the tournaments I have wanted.

The US Open final was tough and the Laver Cup. I had and I have a small problem in my hand. I am recovering and I hope to fulfil the planned schedule and finish the year the way I would like after a season that has been good.


  1. Wishing you, Rafa a full recovery. It is great to see you so relaxed and happy in those lovely photos above.
    You appear to be striking the right balance between your schedule, and life off the courts. All the best to you, your fiance, family, team and friends.

  2. Rafa all the best hope you are get well and rest vamossssssssss champ we love your fans for ever 🎾🎾🎾😘😘😘❤️❤️❤️👍👍👍🎾🎾🎾😘😘😘❤️❤️❤️👍👍👍🎾🎾🎾😘😘😘❤️❤️❤️

    • Congratulations Rafa for getting the No.1 ranking back as Djoko looses in the quarterfinals of Shanghai open to Tsitsipass

      • I am thrilled I will see a new champion holding the trophy this year other than Murray, Federer and Djoker since 2010!

        I should have stayed up and enjoyed the entire match😉 but instead I lost interest and went to bed when Tsitsipas was down 2 to 5 in the first set. Anyway, wonderful come back by Tsitsipas, well done👏 I hope he goes all the way……

  3. Go Rafa!! I have waited 15 years to see you live!! So has my 82 year old mom, SO hope you good to go in Cape Town against Rodger. Speedy recovery and we always behind you 😘

  4. He should be focusing on the wedding 🙂 . There will be other tournaments, but hopefully he’s only ever going to get married once! All the best to them both.

  5. “Much love and respect to you Rafa.
    Wish more tickets become available so I could see you in South Africa.
    Wishing you a speedy recovery and a super successful 2020


    • I wish there were more tickets available for the match in Cape Town SA. I have been watching you since you first took part in competitions when you were about 17 years old.
      I read your biografy and loved the way you and your family stand together. I wish you a very happy marriage with your beautiful wife to be. I hope your hand is healing well for all the matches to come. Vamos dear Rafa.

  7. Praying he recovers and is able to play in Paris and London. Wishing him all the best for his wedding with many, many happy and healthy years ahead. If anyone deserves abundant blessings it’s you. You will always be my number one.

  8. Rafa’s two top priorities seem to be his wedding and healing his injury. I am very pleased for him on both counts.

    Rafa’s wedding is scheduled for October 19, according to the media. The inauguration of his academy was on October 19, 2016, three years ago. I wonder if that is coincidence or intentional. Without a doubt there will be more success stories for Rafa.


  9. Recuperate cuidate y que pases un dia feliz el dia d tu boda.. Os desro lo mejor y no olvides que SIEMPRE CO TIGO..

  10. I hope you recover completely before the new season starts. You are my favorite tennis player of all time!

  11. Rafa please take off and enjoy yourself for the rest of the year If anybody deserves it YOU DO see you in 2020
