Spaniard’s season ended in August due to the injury
Rafael Nadal announced on Instagram Saturday that he is recovering after undergoing treatment on his foot injury, which curtailed the Spaniard’s season in August.
“Hi everyone, I haven’t communicated with you through social media for a while,” Nadal said. “I was in Barcelona with my team and medical team to receive a treatment on my foot that will keep me a few days of rest and a few weeks off court. I’m back home now and in the process of recovery. Thanks to everyone for the support.”
Following his semi-final defeat to Novak Djokovic at Roland Garros, the 35-year-old did not compete again until he played in Washington at the start of August. After reaching the third round at the Citi Open, the World No. 5 then withdrew from the National Bank Open Presented by Rogers in Toronto.
Nadal announced he would miss the rest of the 2021 season ahead of the US Open last month and is aiming to return to action next year.
