Rafael Nadal announced that he will not be at the Monte Carlo Masters 1000 and sowed doubts about his future

The Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal announced that he will not play the Masters 1000 in Monte Carlo, a tournament that had him as champion on 11 occasions, due to some physical difficulties that he has been dragging for some time. The former world number one explained in a post on his social networks the reason for his absence from the tournament. “Hello everyone! It’s been a difficult time for me in terms of sports. Unfortunately I can tell you that I am not going to play in Monte Carlo. My body just won’t let me,” she said in the first instance. He added: “And although I continue to work and try my best every day with the illusion of being able to compete in tournaments that have been very important to me, the reality is that today I can’t. I have no choice but to accept the situation and try to look to the immediate future while maintaining the illusion and desire to give myself the opportunity to make things better. A big hug to everyone and thank you for the love and support always!” It should be remembered that the native of Manacor played his last match at the beginning of January, when he lost in the quarterfinals of the ATP 250 in Brisbane to the local Jordan Thompson. In this tournament, he suffered physical problems that prevented him from playing the Australian Open and the Masters 1000 in Indian Wells and Miami.The Spaniard’s return will probably take place at the ATP 500 in Barcelona (played between April 15 and 21) or at the Masters 1000 in Madrid, which will take place between the last week of April and the first week of May.
