Rafael Nadal confirmed his participation in the Madrid Open 2022
April 26 (Reuters) - Australian Open champion Rafa Nadal will make his return from a month-long absence due to injury at this week's ATP Masters 1000 Madrid Open that begins later this week, the Spaniard announced on Tuesday.
The 35-year-old, who last played in the final of Indian Wells against Taylor Fritz on March 20, suffered a stress fracture in his rib during the tournament, forcing him to miss clay-court events in Monte Carlo and Barcelona. read more
"Despite arriving just before the tournament and preparation being difficult, I really want to play at home since the opportunities are few," Nadal wrote on Twitter.
"So I'm going to try to do it in the best way I can. See you in Madrid."
The former world number's one return to action comes little under a month before the French Open, where he will be bidding for a record-extending 14th title. The clay-court major gets underway on May 22.
