ATP Tour in Madrid: In Madrid on Wednesday, a Spaniard made a victorious return to the ATP Tour. After returning to the ATP Tour, Rafael Nadal expressed his joy with his first-round victory over Miomir Kecmanovic. However, he emphasized the importance of patience. And he works to improve his fitness at the Mutua Madrid Open. At Manolo Santana Stadium, the Spaniard defeated the Serbian 6-1, 7-6(4) in his first encounter. After suffering a rib injury in March.
Rafael Nadal said, “I’m very, very delighted to leave the match.”
In addition, he mentioned it in his post-match press conference. “You must be honest with yourself whenever possible.” And you must also be honest with yourself. There was no preparation on my part. You can’t anticipate amazing things right now. It’s because my first day of training here was last Thursday. I’ve had very little training.
“I had only trained for one day, and all of my training had been ups and downs. It’s been quite a ride. I’ve had good days and bad days. Also, It makes sense, and I started to feel better yesterday. And I was feeling well today in the pre-warm-up. In general, I believe I played a good match,” Nadal said.
The World No. 4 has done well after injury setbacks in recent years, as seen by his victory at the Australian Open in January. Nadal was absent for the second part of 2021 due to a foot injury, but he returned to Australia, winning the Melbourne Summer Set. It is before earning his record-tying 21st Grand Slam championship at the Australian Open. The 35-year-old believes that his second-round victory in Madrid was significant. It’s a critical step in the right direction as he attempts to regain momentum.
“I was able to play against an opponent for one hour and 55 minutes today.” In recent months, it has been playing quite well, so this is a great victory,” Nadal remarked.
Moreover, One hour and 55 minutes on the court helped me reach my final goal. Also, it recovers my previous health and previous fitness. I’m very excited about it.
“If you come back and win the first few games, you’ll be able to regain your rhythm.” Also, If you come back and lose and lose, you’ll get yourself in a losing cycle where you won’t be able to keep up with the game’s pace. As a result, the first few matches are essential. They are precious to me, and today’s victory is particularly significant for that reason.”

Rafael Nadal will compete in Madrid this week to win his sixth title. And he will play Belgian David Goffin. Also, the 91-time tour-level champion is delighted for the chance to play in his hometown of Madrid once again.
“Playing in Spain is essential, and the people’s support and love have always been unconditional,” Nadal remarked. “I’m aware of my age and the fact that I don’t know how many more times I’ll be able to play here in front of these people. So I’m just trying to enjoy it as much as possible.”
