The Spaniard advances in his set-up with his sights set on the next US Open

It has long been evident that the good performance of Carlos Alcaraz has been compared to the beginnings it had Rafael Nadal in his youth. That is why a video of the manacori has left a great controversy among the followers of alcarazwho do not approve of his new partner.

And it is that the Balearic has been training for several days in the facilities of his academy in Manacor. Nadal took a few weeks off to recover from his injury that prevented him from jumping onto the center court of Wimbledon in the semifinals and is already in top form to reappear in the competition.

Rafa Nadal wants to reappear on the ATP circuit with his participation in the Canadian Masters 1000, a tournament that he has won five times and that will serve as a set-up for the US Open, the main objective in what remains of season.

Thus the Balearic has been seen on the track with his cousin Joan Nadal, son of Toni Nadal, training at great intensity. Both he and his brother Toni play tennis and have already had the opportunity to play in a professional tournament despite their youth.

The comparison between Alcaraz and Nadal is no longer evident to fans

Sometimes the two brothers compete together in doubles, but also individually. The 22-time Grand Slam champion is thus preparing his return to the circuit with his presence at the Masters 1000 in Canada, whose participation was confirmed a few days ago by the director of the tournament itself for fans.


“Everything indicates that Nadal will play the tournament. He has made hotel reservations and has asked us to send him a box of the balls that we will use for the tournament,” said Eugene Lapierre, head of the Canadian tournament. For now, outrage is growing at the way Nadal brushes Alcaraz aside.
