Ever since the 2023 Australian Open incident where Nadal lost early in the second round, he has been out of the game, and a disastrous year to follow. His ranking plummeted beyond 650 and to add to his misery, Novak Djokovic surpassed his for most number of Grand Slam titles. Over the last few months, the Spaniard had shed light on his possible future. He shattered the hearts of millions by announcing his possible retirement next year. However, the fans still wanted another glimpse of the Spaniard and prayed for their idol to give it his all next year.
Now Nadal has answered those prayers and revealed that he will officially return to Brisbane. After a year of misery, it is high time for the 37-year-old to play the tennis the whole world has missed for a year. The 22-time Grand Slam winner also wants to play alongside Carlos Alcaraz at the Paris Olympics which is a huge addition for the Spain team if the ITF gives a green flag. Nonetheless, the whole tennis world is rejoicing in the fact that Nadal has officially announced his return and will be eager to witness their idol play after a year.
