Coach Carlos Moya on how Rafael Nadal’s recovery looked at Wimbledon

Coach Carlos Moya has ruled Rafael Nadal out for just a week with an abdominal injury suffered at Wimbledon. Nadal, 36, was visibly hampered by an abdominal injury during his Wimbledon quarter-final against Taylor Fritz, but held on to win in five games.

But the test results were not good as Nadal decided to withdraw from his Wimbledon semi-final against Nick Kyrgios. In an interview with the ATP Tour website, Moya was asked what Nadal’s recovery looks like. “He’s been off for a week.

It’s an injury that doesn’t stop him from practicing, but it does mean he can’t serve. A few weeks later, he added the service to his routine. We thought it would make it to Canada, but it didn’t.

It only made it to Cincinnati. Now we are taking it every day. Currently, everything is under control, with a few exceptions. “With that in mind, we believe Rafa will be competitive,” Moya told the ATP Tour website.

Moya withdrew from Wimbledon against Nadal

After wins at the Australian Open and the French Open, Nadal was hoping to win Wimbledon and continue his pursuit of a calendar year Grand Slam. Also, Nadal has been searching for his Wimbledon title since 2010.

Reaching the Wimbledon semifinals and then being eliminated was heartbreaking for Nadal. “It really hurt. To be in the semi-finals at Wimbledon and not be able to play at the highest level. It was one of the best raffles I remember from the start, brutal, unpredictable.

We decided to evaluate the risks, analyze the advantages and disadvantages. When you don’t participate every day, it’s difficult. I wasn’t there, but I think it was a good decision. Rafa is 36 years old and has already won multiple Masters 1000s and the US Open this year.

The best thing for him is to try to be healthy. If he is, he is still a competitor in any tournament, “said Moya. Now Nadal will compete in the US Open, where he has reached the last 16.
