◼️ After an injury to his right leg, the Spaniard is ready to defend his number 1 ranking in the ATP Tour.
The Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal began his training to participate in the Monte Carlo Masters 1000, which will take place from April 15 to 22 at the Principality’s Country Club.
The ‘King of Clay’ will return to a circuit tournament after almost three months of absence, since he had to leave the Australian Open due to a grade one injury in the iliopsoas of his right leg.
Nadal will compete with great exponents of the white sport like the German Alexander Zverev, whom he won last week in the quarterfinals in the Davis Cup.
In addition, the Serbian Novak Djokovic will also play the tournament, now under the tutelage of his Slovakian coach Marián Vajda, who led him to reach his maximum level.
Rafa will have to win the Masters 1000 of Monte Carlo if he wants to keep the first place in the ranking of the Association of Professional Tennis Players (ATP).
Although the Swiss Roger Federer will not participate in the same tournament, there are only 100 points of difference between the two players, in case of not obtaining the title, the native of Mallorca would lose a thousand units and with it the top of the ranking.
