It is worth mentioning that Nadal has not played on the circuit since March 20 when he fell in the final of the ATP Masters 1000 in Indian Wells to the American Taylor Fritz. In fact, in that match the Spaniard suffered several inconveniences due to the fissure in one of his ribs, which occurred during the semifinal duel against his compatriot Carlos Alcaraz.The 21-time Grand Slam winner had an exceptional start to the year before his injury, since he had 20 matches undefeated and had won the ATP 250 in Melbourne, the Australian Open and the ATP 500 in Acapulco.
