The treatment used by Rafa Nadal is causing many benefits in the Spanish tennis player

After his physical problems, Nadal has returned to the courts to achieve his goal at Wimbledon

With the incentive of seeing him compete after undergoing a treatment that allows him to act without having to receive anesthesia in his battered left foot. Nadal beat the Swiss 6-2, 6-3, now well below the best version of him, ranked 265th in the ranking, after overcoming some injuries.

Rafa, who had lost the training matches the previous two days against Grigor Dimitrov and Kamil Majchrzak, moved quite freely on the pitch, feeling the ball well judging by his accurate and firm hitting, and with a good hand for the backhand slice and volleys close to the net.

The pandemic was an event that blocked the trajectory of the Spanish tennis player

Not bad for not having stepped on a green track, neither in 2020, when the pandemic caused the suspension of the tour, nor in 2021, when he resigned due to his repeated physical problems after falling in the Roland Garros semifinals against Novak Djokovic, who is also involved in the event.

It should be remembered that on Friday he will face Auger-Aliassime, a more important touchstone to gauge his status and his chances. On Thursday Carlos Alcaraz will appear, against the American Frances Tiafoe, around 5:00 p.m. Some games that no one will want to miss and waiting to see Nadal.
