Rafa struggling with recovery after treatment on his left foot: “I follow the doctors’ instructions carefully, I can’t take risks”
“I don’t know when I’ll be back to play. Every day I work and follow a specific plan that has very clear objectives and phases. But I won’t reveal what they are.” Rafa Nadal is calm but also very realistic about his physical condition. Speaking to the Spanish media, the 13 Roland Garros champion was not too optimistic about a quick recovery
“There are aspects that unfortunately are not under my control, I can put the commitment and the confidence to return to play soon, but of course until I am perfectly healed I will not be able to return”.
Nadal underwent a new treatment to treat the inflammation in his left foot. For years, the Spanish left-handed has been suffering from Muller-Weiss syndrome, a degenerative problem that had already kept him still for some time in 2005 and that thanks to an insole he was able to keep under control: “A short time ago I underwent a little surgery. “more invasive. I’m in the middle of a rehabilitation process that involves a progressive increase in loads. I try to listen to every sensation and see the progress every day, but I really have to be very careful.” To attempt a recovery without relapses, Rafa explained that he is extremely loyal and that he is following the doctors’ instructions to the letter. The goal would be to return for the Australian Open, but three months into the first Grand Slam of the season, plans may have to be reviewed.
