Rafael Nadal’s attempt for a record-extending 14th French Open victory has been hampered by chronic foot problems.
With the injury, the 21-time grand slam champion missed a significant portion of last season and claims he is still learning to live and play through the agony.
The Spaniard appeared to be struggling terribly toward the finish of his final game, which he lost to Denis Shapovalov at the Italian Open on Thursday.“It’s nothing new for me to be a player with an ailment. It is something that exists “After the match, Nadal informed reporters.
“Unfortunately, my day-to-day life is terrible. Even so, I’m making an effort… it’s irritating that I can’t practice properly on a regular basis.”Nadal revealed to the public in early May that he had a “chronic injury that has no therapy” after his dramatic round-of-16 triumph against David Goffin at the Madrid Open.
“When I play, my foot hurts occasionally,” he continued. You wouldn’t be concerned if you saw me every day. My foot is often in discomfort, especially after a three-hour match or a long training session. “I end up walking a little clumsily. But I have a chronic injury for which there is no cure. That’s a part of my existence, and it’s one of the drawbacks of not being able to finish the game sooner. In the short term, I believe I am physically fine, but my feet must adapt to competition.”
He confirmed that he would be taking his doctor to the French Open in order to better manage his ailment.“The first thing I need to do is not have pain when I practice,” said Nadal, who is still recovering from a rib injury suffered in March at Indian Wells.“It’s true that I’ll be accompanied by my doctor during the French Open, Roland Garros.” That can help since you have the ability to accomplish things. You must stay and respect all of the great things that have happened to me on both bright and terrible days.”Roland Garros will take place from May 22 to June 5.
