Rafael Nadal has been one of the most determined sportsmen in the world. He has faced adversity his face and has managed to fight his way out of a tough situation. He has been one of those players who at one point seemed to have lost everything and the next moment he comes back and surprises everyone that tried to rule him out of the game.

The Spaniard has already gone through many surgeries and he is currently going through one more to heal his foot which has been a force of friction for him. The foot injury has been troubling him for ages now and he takes rest, gets some help, and comes back to win some of the most difficult tournaments in the world.

He was out of the action after the French Open last year and no one expected him to make a successful comeback but he came back and conquered two out of the four grand slams in 2022. He is all set to get into the third one but still isn’t sure of his chances of making a comeback. However, his uncle and former coach Toni Nadal has full faith in the Spanish bull to not only make a comeback but win Wimbledon for the third time in his career.

Rafael Nadal’s uncle Toni Nadal has shown a lot of support for his nephew in the past few weeks. After the win at French Open Nadal wasn’t convinced if he would be able to make it to Wimbledon. But his uncle had no doubt that he will get himself ready for the tournament.

As time passes by the chances of Rafael Nadal making it to the grass-court grand slam are becoming stronger with some reports showing that he will be there. It would be really exciting to watch Nadal on such an amazing run playing at a tournament that hasn’t been the most successful for him.

Nevertheless, it will be exciting to watch an in-form Nadal play at Wimbledon. He has a chance of winning the tournament 12 years after the last time he won it. Toni Nadal also said that even if he is suffering from the pain he can compete. In a recent interview, Toni said, “Rafa played with his foot asleep in the 2008 Wimbledon final vs Federer, and in other Grand Slams too.”
