Nadal Recovering Well

Rafael Nadal appears to be recovering well and he should be fully fit for participating in the US Open which is starting in the last week of this month.

Some more tests have been done on Nadal’s wrist and their results have suggested that the Spaniard is not too far away from getting recovered completely.

There have been doubts over Nadal’s participation at Flushing Meadows since he injured his wrist while playing a backhand shot in one of his practice sessions.

A couple of days back, his coach Toni Nadal had said that he was not sure if the left hander would be able to travel to New York to defend his title.

There was disappointment among Nadal’s fans after that remark of Toni, but, the statement released by the tennis Federation of Spain yesterday would have given them some relief.

That statement read, “A clinical assessment of Rafa’s injury has been done and we believe he is going through his recovery process alright. The condition of his wrist will keep getting assessed on a regular basis.”

Nadal has not stopped training. He has been having a few hits, but, with a wrist bandage on. Recently, on his official account on a social networking site, a snap was uploaded in which he could be seen practicing with his injured wrist bandaged.

Nadal is yet to feature in a competitive match after the Wimbledon Championships from where he had been knocked out by a qualifying teenager who was more than 100 places below him in the world rankings.

The 28-year old was scheduled to play in a couple of hard court tournaments in Toronto and then in Cincinnati ahead of the US Open, but, the wrist injury prevented him from doing so.
