Despite an injury to his right wrist, Rafael Nadal isn’t holding back on his training. The World No. 2 is still “optimistic” for a return at the US Open three weeks from today.
“Training these days, always optimistic,” Nadal posted on Facebook today.
Nadal, who has already withdrawn from Toronto and Cincinnati, and his team hope to make a final decision on his title defense in New York in 10 days time.
Rafa hurt the wrist during a routine practice last Tuesday.
Meanwhile, unable to hit two-handed backhands (he can hit slices, though) he’ll continue to pound that ferocious forehand.
