Rafael Nadal, relieved by radio frequency treatment to his left foot, ended the suspense during a press conference in Mallorca on Friday. He will travel to London on Monday to complete his preparation for Wimbledon, which will take place from June 28 to July 10. He has not stepped on the lawn of the All‐England Club since 2019. Finalist in 2011 for the last time in the temple of tennis, he therefore wants to be careful when talking about a possible coronation.
“I am excited about the possibility of playing at Wimbledon. I haven’t played on grass in three years, so I have to be patient. It’s a very complicated surface because illogical things happen. I know that the first laps are very difficult and that I will have to survive. It’s true that the second week is a more normal tournament with the evolution of the field. I’m going to have a week of training in London, I’m going to play two matches at Hurlingham (exhibition with Djokovic, Alcaraz and Ruud, editor’s note) and we’ll see how it goes. »
