Rafael Nadal , 22-time Grand Slam winner, has had a successful hip surgery in Barcelona. This is a great relief for tennis fans all over the world. Jon Wertheim is a well-known sports journalist who announced the news on his Twitter account.

Nadal’s hip injury has been a persistent problem for some time. The Spaniard said that this was the sole reason why he was forced to withdraw from the Australian Open. Nadal also didn’t participate in any other tournaments this year and confirmed last month that he wouldn’t be playing tennis in the future.

Nadal also announced that 2024 could be his final season. He turned 37 years old today. Wertheim tweeted that Nadal’s operation “went well” and may have ruled him out of the game for 5 more months. It is possible that he will be back in time for the Australian Open 2023, although no official date has yet been announced.

Nadal is reported to have returned home after his surgery in order to celebrate 37th birthday.

Nadal will fall out of the top 100 after the French Open 2023

Nadal’s hip injury has had extreme ramifications. The 14-time Roland Garros champion will fall out of the top hundred in the ATP rankings this Sunday, after the French Open. He will drop below 100 in the ATP rankings after 20 years due to his non-participation at Roland Garros. Nadal’s last absence from this list was in 2003.

It is an alarming sign for Nadal, but it will also be a relief for his fans to see him compete in a possible last season without injury. It will be fascinating to see how the King of Clay makes a great comeback and regains his position as the top player in the world.
