Spaniard Rafa Nadal confirmed, on Wednesday, via social networks, that he will travel to the United States to participate in the Cincinnati Masters, his first tournament since he was forced to withdraw from Wimbledon in early July due to a tear in the abdomen that prevented him from playing the semi-final against Nick Kyrgios. .
“Very happy to play again in Sensi. Traveling there tomorrow,” the third man in the world and 22 Grand Slam winner wrote on his Instagram profile, along with a photo he takes on the beach of Porto Cristo in Mallorca.
On August 5, the tennis player from Manacor announced that he would be giving up playing the Master 1000 in Montreal due to some “little inconveniences” he experienced while training his serve.
“Since my days off and subsequent return to training, these weeks have gone well in terms of training and preparation. Four days ago I also started service training, and yesterday, after training, I had some discomfort that was still there today. We have decided not to travel to Montreal and continue training without forcing us,” Nadal explained in a statement sent to EFE.
After his recovery, the Spanish tennis player will begin his US tour this year in Cincinnati, a tournament that will serve as a preparation for the US Open. (Dr)
