You still have to be patient. In a series of tweets, published on Friday August 5, Rafael Nadal announced that he was giving up participating in the Masters 1000 in Montreal. At 36, the Spaniard is suffering from an abdominal injury. She has already prevented him from playing his semi-final against Nick Kyrgios at Wimbledon in July.
The Manacor bull states that he felt a “embarrassed” Thursday in training when he had only been recommended to serve for four days. So there is nothing “no choice but to be careful at this point and think about [sa] health”.
Desde los días de vacaciones y mi posterior reincorporation a los entrenamientos todo ha ido bien estas semanas. Hace cuatro días que empecé también a entrenar el servicio y ayer, tras el entrenamiento, tuve una pequeña molestia que hoy seguía ahí.

“We decided not to go to Montreal and to continue training without forcing” wrote the winner of Roland-Garros 2022. He will be replaced by the 48th player in the world, the American Mackenzie McDonald.
