Eurosport expert Alex Corretja is just one of those who are excited about Rafael Nadal's return to the tennis courts. After a year of recovery from injury, we will have the opportunity to watch the great Spaniard at the Brisbane International. Corretja believes that the return of Nadal will be a big thing for tennis, given everything he has achieved in his career.

“Just thinking and saying Rafa's name, I get excited because of everything he transmits, the hopes that his return has generated, seeing that he is eager to compete again. For me, the results are really going to be the least important thing."- Corretja said, as quoted by eurosport.com!

Alex Corretja: Rafael Nadal has the winning gene in his heart

Rafael Nadal is a person who has the winning gene in his heart, Corretja says. It is difficult to predict at this moment how ready Nadal is, and whether he can really do great things, but first of all, we should look forward to his return, and only then set expectations.

“He has the winning gene in his heart and he will have it until he retires. If he wins more or less matches, I am not worried about it, but if he is physically well and healthy and has no problems, I am convinced that we will see a Rafa who will win big titles again.”

When you have been away for a long time, it is very difficult to know what to expect. Especially when you are 37 years old like Nadal. We have no doubt that the Spaniard will do his best to be ready for challenges in his career.

“For me, one of the uncertainties is to know how his body will react, not only from the injury he has had, but also from the possible adversities he may encounter at any given moment. Because when you haven't played for a long time, you might have other problems."
