Rafa Nadal does not have good news. The Balearic tennis player suffers from a stress crack in the third left costal arch that will keep him away from the courts for between 4 and 6 weeks. "I am sunk and sad," he acknowledged after learning the extent of his injury.
“This is not good news and I did not expect this. I am sunk and sad because after the start of the season that I have had so good, I reached a very important part of the year with very good feelings and good results, "he said through a statement.
However, he added that with his "fighting and overcoming spirit", what he will do is "be patient and work hard".
Tests carried out on the world number three confirmed that he will be out between four and six weeks due to an injury that occurred during the Indian Wells semi-final match against Carlos Alcaraz .
Rafa Nadal wants to be optimistic and hopes to come back stronger to continue improving his balance of 20-1 at the beginning of the course. The Balearic returned to Spain on Tuesday, and as soon as he landed in Madrid he went to Barcelona to be treated by his medical team, led by Dr. Ángel Ruiz-Cotorro , who confirmed the injury.
