Madrid Open 2022: Rafael Nadal’s first practice in Caja Magica [PHOTOS]

The wait is over now as Rafael Nadal hits the practice court in the Spanish capital where he is playing first time after coming back from rib injury.


  1. To see Rafael Nadal back in court brings so much joy to to the hearts of people who believe and care for you. Here’s wishing you the very best of everything for the coming week. I will be watching Madrid Mutua 2022 from Sydney, Australia

  2. Rafa can win Madrid as he has done this on numerous occasions and coming back from injuries as he did at the Australian Open . I think only Alcarez stands in Rafa’s way unless Novak rediscovers his game . I am not forgetting the rest of the field but Rafa can defeat anyone if he is on his game on clay .

  3. Love seeing Rafa back on the court. I pray he is fully recovered. I had 3 dislocated ribs in August and I STILL suffer pain from the muscles trying to protect the ribs! Having your own personal medical team sure helps! 🙂 Cannot wait to watch you play in Madrid! Opening of the clay court only happens when Rafa is on the clay!

  4. Nice to see him smiling ☺️. Rib injuries are extremely painful and no joke and happy he recovered in time. One step at a time.
