Spanish tennis ace Rafael Nadal is working hard for his comeback. As the first tournament of the 2024 season for Nadal (the Brisbane International) is just a few days away, the 22-time Grand Slam champion is sweating it out like never before to get back into rhythm. Knowing the intensity of competition at the highest level, Rafael Nadal is leaving no stone unturned.

He is working on the physical as well as mental aspects of his game. While he trained in Dubai to get acclimatized to extreme weather conditions, the Spaniard is training indoors in Mallorca to ace his movements on the court. He is also picking and choosing opponents.

Nadal has played against Arthur Fils and Richard Gasquet before he chose Jaume Munar to challenge him on the court. The pair locked horns at the Rafael Nadal Academy. Like Fils and Gasquet, Nadal troubled Munar as well, and as per the Spaniard, the 22-time Grand Slam winner is ready to go if he continues like this.

As long as he’s healthy, can train like we do, and looks competitive, everything else will come. He’s a great champion, I don’t think anyone can doubt that. Everything else comes with time, so he will be competitive for sure if his body respects it.
Jaume Munar said as per We Love Tennis.

Rafael Nadal aims to rein supreme in 2024

Nadal is aiming to make a comeback to the ATP tour after almost a year. The Spaniard last played at the 2023 Australian Open where he bowed out after losing in the second round to Mackenzie McDonald. He recuperated injuries, underwent surgeries, and finally seems ready to make a comeback to the tour.

Nadal will play at the Brisbane International before he enters the 2024 Australian Open. The Spaniard is expected to go deep into the tournament considering his 2022 heroics, where he won the title on a comeback from a long injury layoff.

But more than the Australian Open, his fans are excited to see the King of Clay in action at the French Open and then the 2024 Paris Olympics. There are chances that the Spaniard will make an appearance at the multi-sporting event and win his third gold medal. He is also expected to partner with Carlos Alcaraz for Team Spain.

But all of these are mere anticipations, as Nadal himself has not said anything with certainty. The Spaniard is still assessing his fitness and he will be able to take a call on his Olympic participation only after playing a few tournaments. Nevertheless, his fans expect Nadal to reign supreme and win a couple of more Grand Slam titles before he decides to call it a day.
