Rafael Nadal (14th, Spain) will miss the French Open tennis tournament, which opens in Paris, France at the end of this month due to a continuing hip injury.
Nadal held a press conference in Mallorca, Spain on the 18th and announced, “I will not be able to participate in the French Open, the second major tournament of the season that opens on the 28th.”
Nadal, who was knocked out in the second round of the Australian Open in January this year, has not been able to appear in an official match since.
He has been concentrating on treatment and rehabilitation for nearly four months due to a hip injury.
Nadal, who is strong in clay court competitions, has won 14 times in total at the French Open alone and has won 22 times in singles at major competitions, tying with Novak Djokovic (1st place, Serbia) for the most wins in men’s singles at major competitions.안전놀이터
Nadal, who first competed in the French Open in 2005, played in the French Open for 18 consecutive years until last year.
“I don’t know how the situation will change, but 2024 will be his last year as a tennis player,” Nadal announced at a press conference, announcing his retirement.
Nadal, who has not been able to play for more than four months in recent months, was pushed out of the 10th place in the ATP tour singles world rankings in March this year for the first time in 18 years since April 2005, and if the French Open ranking points he won last year are missing, he will be out of the 100th place in the June rankings. expected to go out [Yonhap News = Comprehensive]
