After his loss to Jordan Thompson, Rafael Nadal expressed uncertainty about his future and participation in the Austrian Open. The Spaniard highlighted feeling fearful in the past few days, fearing the situation might not go well. He also mentioned his displeasure with the excessive optimism shown by fans and journalists.

I need to see how I wake up tomorrow morning,” Nadal said, as quoted by eurosport.com


Nadal mentioned that while recent discussions centered on positive aspects, he's been cautious in his outlook. He highlighted the challenges of maintaining top-level performance after a demanding year, uncertain of how his body might respond when faced with tougher situations. Nadal stressed that despite these concerns, his approach to tournaments remains unchanged, indicating consistency in his mindset and preparation. His mentality has always been something special, even from the first day of his career.

The fact that he hasn't played for so long causes dilemmas for Nadal regarding his future. The Spaniard would certainly like to perform at the Australian Open, but it is necessary first of all to listen to his body and then make the right decision.


"I need to accept everything how it comes. If things happen, if I have one problem there, one problem to the other part of the body, I need to accept it.
It’s a beginning, and I haven’t played in a tournament for such a long time. I hope to have the chance to be practising next week and to play in Melbourne [at the Australian Open]. Honestly, I am not 100% sure of anything now.”


Many hope that we will have the opportunity to watch Rafael Nadal at the Australian Open. Time will tell best what will happen.
