The Montreal Masters 1,000 was going to be the comeback tournament after an abdominal injury kept him from Wimbledon, on July 7, before playing the semifinal match against Nick Kyrgios, but Rafael Nadal will not travel to Canada due to discomfort that have arisen during the last days in which the service has been training. This was announced by the tennis player: «Since the vacation days and my subsequent return to training, everything has gone well these weeks. Four days ago I also started training the service and yesterday, after training, I had a little discomfort that was still there today. We have decided not to travel to Montreal and continue with the training without forcing », indicated the Balearic in a statement through his social networks. Nadal knew that the injury that kept him out of Wimbledon early would heal over time. He even admitted that it only bothered him on serve so he was soon able to practice from the back of the court. And his idea was to recover, rest during the holidays and head towards the end of the course with the two Masters 1,000 of the North American tour (Canada and Cincinnati) to prepare well for the US Open, the last Grand Slam of the year and which begins on the 29th of August. However, this new setback alters the plan and he will wait until he is better to see what tournaments can help him to strengthen tennis on the hard court. “I hope to play again in Montreal, a tournament that I love and that I have won five times in front of an audience that has always welcomed me with great affection. I have no choice but to be prudent at this point and think about health, “Nadal concludes. From the vacation days and my subsequent return to training, everything has gone well these weeks. Four days ago I also started training the service and yesterday, after training, I had a little discomfort that was still there today.- Rafa Nadal (@RafaelNadal) August 5, 2022 Thus, the Canadian Masters 1,000 is left without the Balearic Islands due to problems physical and without Novak Djokovic due to anti-coronavirus policies, the Serbian is discharged from this tournament by not being able to land in Canada without the full Covid vaccine.
