Notably, Nadal has kept on updating fans with his impressive training videos ahead of the Indian Wells. David Massey, CEO of the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters, has given his insight into the matter. As per Massey himself, Rafa wants to participate in the Monte Carlo Masters after taking part in Indian Wells. Notably, Rafa has won the title a total of 11 times and is looking forward to bagging the record 12th victory.

I spoke to his team and they confirmed that he wants to play in Monte Carlo after taking part in Indian Wells. We keep our fingers crossed for his health but we hope and trust that he will be able to come. He has already won the tournament 11 times and could be looking for a twelfth triumph.

Now that the injuries have slowed the performance of the star-studded player, Nadal looks to bid the sport goodbye this year by finishing the year on a high.

Nadal has confirmed that he will talk about his retirement plans by the start of the French Open, and he will return to the court again in an exhibition matchup against Carlos Alcaraz set to take place in Las Vegas. 

He is then bound to play at the Indian Wells Masters, which will start on March 6 to March 13, 2024, which will give the Spaniard the much-needed game time ahead of the most-awaited Roland Garros.
