Nadal made his way back to Spain where he recently underwent more testing to confirm the results of the initial scans. He provided an update on social media confirming the initial diagnosis and the initial recovery timespan of 6 to 8 weeks.
Today I have been at the Tecknon Tennis Clinic in Barcelona where they have carried out some tests on me. The Melbourne results are confirmed and the deadlines remain the same. Established the treatments to follow and in 3 weeks they will perform new tests to see the evolution.
The return for Nadal is likely going to be in March for the Sunshine doubles albeit it's unknown whether he'll play at the events. He's still on the entry list but that can change depending on how his recovery progresses.
