As expected, Rafael Nadal is not on the entry list of either next week’s Qatar ExxonMobil Open or the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships this month as he continues his recovery from a left hip injury he sustained at the Australian Open.

The next tournament on the calendar is Indian Wells, but it’s not sure will Rafa recover until then. Also, our champ is scheduled to face Carlos Alcaraz in a Las Vegas exhibition event at the MGM Grand on March 5th.


  1. Well… Rafael Nadal won’t be playing in Indian Wells & Miami Open ’23 as well, confirmed by himself today (28/2/2023). Just take a effective healing, Champ.

  2. Rafa I hope you will get well soon.Enjoy your time with your Wife and Baby Boy. I only ask one request. Please get well to play Roland Garros and Win for the 15teenth time. I love watching you play. You are so exciting to watch and the love of the game shows. Thank you for being such a great sportsman and showing all others how it is done

  3. Rafa-hope you are recovering well. Cherish your time with Maria and the baby. While the world fights crises and hopefully regains its sanity, we hope you strengthen physically and psychologically👏💪👍🍀❤️

    • Rafa forget IW and that farce of a match with Alcaraz…he is only looking to have you out of action coming up to RG. They way he was speaking recently..you were his idol so anyway he can keep you and even the joker from tournaments, he’ll do his utmost. So my Champion I wish you to be 1000% fit to take no. 23 in 2023 and your 15th at RG. My rant over. Vamos my Champion
