22-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal gave an update on his health after undergoing surgery.
“Hello everyone. As you know last night I had surgery. Everything went well and the arthroscopy was on the left psoas tendon that has kept me out of competition since January.
“An old injury to the labrum of my left hip was also regularized, which will surely help the better evolution of the tendon. I want to thank doctors Marc Philippon, Jaume Vilaró and Angel Ruiz-Cotorro for their work.
“I will start progressive functional rehabilitation immediately and the normal recovery process they tell me is 5 months, if all goes well.
“Once again thank you for all the support you have shown me and that you show me every day. Today also on my birthday. Not in the desired or dreamed place, although THANK YOU anyway,” Rafa said in a series of tweets.
