Rafael Nadal raring to go as he hits practice court in Mallorca

17-time Grand Slam winner, Rafael Nadal has returned to training following a recent surgery.

The 32-year-old Spanish maestro hasn’t played in a competitive match since retiring against Juan Martin del Potro in the semifinals of the US Open in September.

An abdominal injury then ruled him out of subsequent tournaments and saw him relinquish the ATP world number one ranking to Novak Djokovic.

On November 5, he had a surgery on a troublesome ankle and is now making efforts to get back in the best possible shape before the start of the 2019 season, sharing photos on social media of him practicing at his academy in Manacor.

Despite being hit with injury problems throughout the 2018 season, Nadal enjoyed success on Tour, winning five titles, including the French Open, and boasting a 45-4 win-loss record in the process.

He is expected to make his competitive return at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship in Abu Dhabi from December 27-29, an exhibition event that will also feature world No.1 Novak Djokovic and South Africa’s Kevin Anderson, who’s the defending champion.
