After spending some holiday time at the beach with girlfriend Francisca “Xisca” Perello, Rafael Nadal has resumed training in Mallorca for the upcoming ATP summer swing.
Nadal, who lost his No. 1 ranking to Novak Djokovic following Wimbledon, says he aims to work hard in preparation for the tough hard court season which culminates with his US Open title defense.
“I’m back to training having a physical training session with Joan Forcades . My physical trainer. The next tournament Montreal :)” Nadal posted on Facebook.
“After a long holiday I have to work hard to catch up and get fit,” he added.
During Wimbledon, Nadal injured his left foot leading to speculation that he could miss significant time this summer. But those reports were proved false.
Nadal’s schedule ahead includes the Rogers Cup in Montreal, the Cincinnati Masters, a week off and then the US Open. Montreal begins on August 8 and will feature the Top 10 players in the world all competing including Djokovic, Roger Federer and Andy Murray.
