Rafael Nadal, who withdrew from this week’s Thailand Open to recover from an abdominal injury, said via his website on Sunday that he is back to training and hoping to participate in next week’s China Open in Beijing, an ATP 500 level event. Here’s the word on his training plans and week off:
After a couple of days of rest, Rafa Nadal will be back training today in Mallorca for what will be the preparation of the end of the season.
The No.2 tennis player in the world, together with his childhood friends enjoyed a week of relaxation in the Côte d’Azur (located in the French Riviera), before heading to Monte Carlo, which is one of Rafa’s favourite places to visit in the world.
His visit to the famous and prestigious city was a lot more especial than usual because he got to spend time enjoying its life and spectacular scenery instead of concentrating only on his tennis and stressing out about results.
During his stay, he was invited to the Monaco Yacht Show by the organizers of the event, where he got the chance to see one of the most beautiful and luxurious yachts in the Principality.
Rafa’s plan (subject to change) is to travel to Beijing this week.
Yachts are to Nadal what Prada is to Federer, I guess.
