Rafael Nadal has communicated this Saturday that he has undergone a new treatment on his left foot, in which he suffers an injury that ended his 2021 season prematurely. The Balearic Islands reported it on August 20, after reporting that the chronic problems he suffers in the area prevented him from continuing to play at the highest level.
He then decided to stop and look for solutions and hopes that they go through the treatment he has undergone in Barcelona in the last hours. “Hello everyone, I have not communicated with you through social networks for some time.
Tell you that I was in Barcelona with my team and the medical team, to receive a treatment on my foot that will have me rest for several days and a few weeks off the track. Back home and in the process of recovery. Thank you all for your support, “said the Balearic on Instagram.
Nadal suffers from chronic Müller-Weiss disease due to a deformation of the scaphoid in that left foot. His physical problems increased after Roland Garros and forced him to give up the season grass, in which Wimbledon was the highlight, and the Tokyo Olympics.
He tried to reappear on the American hard court tour, but after being defeated in the knockout stages of the Washington tournament by Lloyd Harris he resigned from the Masters 1000 in Canada and Cincinnati. He then communicated his intention to stop to find a solution in this second part of 2021 that would allow him to come back strong in 2022.
Rafael Nadal reassured his fans
