Rafael Nadal's comeback in Brisbane got everyone feeling hopeful. Beating Kubler showed how ready and determined he is. Toni Nadal, who knows Rafael well, is thrilled too. Playing against Jordan Thompson will be a challenge, but the hope for Rafael's comeback looks promising. It is incredible how motivated and ready the Spaniard is for great things, regardless of his age and injuries.

"The truth is that Rafa can be very happy and excited because his level is good enough. It's true that we have to see it in more difficult matches, but at the moment things are going better than we expected.”- Toni Nadal said, as quoted by eurosport.com

Toni Nadal on Brisbane and Australian Open

Toni Nadal believes that Brisbane will be a great opportunity for Nadal to get in shape and get ready for the Australian Open. Toni hopes that the draw will favor him. It remains to be seen how much Nadal can do at this moment.

"I think if in Brisbane he can play more matches competing with high-quality players and at the Australia Open the draw favours him, as he is not seeded, I think it will be possible to see him having a good tournament," Toni Nadal said.

Toni Nadal thinks Rafael Nadal will look at each day as it happens. He thinks Rafael will check how well he plays and how much he tries. Even though Rafael said this might be his last year, Toni thinks we'll probably see him play more.

Rafael Nadal explained that he requires matches, good health, and consistent practice to perform well. Winning his recent matches, including the doubles, has been beneficial. He values every opportunity to play, feeling happy in being back after a while and feeling competitive again. He's optimistic about his progress but is also curious about how well he can continue to perform.
