Rafael Nadal: 'It doesn't matter if there is less sensitivity because...'

Rafael Nadal’s start to the season left everyone speechless.


Foot problems did not prevent Rafael Nadal from raising the Musketeers Cup to the sky for the fourteenth time in his career. His success at Roland Garros allowed the Mallorcan to win his 22nd major and further extend his advantage over Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic in the fight for the Slam title.

The Swiss and the Serbian are tied at 20 and there is no doubt that Nadal, especially considering the passage of time, has achieved a huge advantage over his two historical rivals. The Spaniard, in order to play Roland Garros, has undergone a striking number of infiltrations; systematically performed infiltrations in the nerve with the anesthetized foot.



Nadal has revealed that he is no longer willing to go down that path and that he will try to find a new solution with his medical team in the coming weeks. In an exclusive interview with OA Sport, Paolo Bertolucci spoke about Nadal’s record and Djokovic’s future.



Inevitably not giving due importance to the events that have conditioned the start of the Serbian season. Djokovic was unable to participate in the Australian Open due to the final visa decision made directly by Australian Immigration Minister Alex Hawke.



In a recent interview with ATP, Rafael Nadal was asked if he reckons post-tennis life is more appealing given the pain he is suffering at the moment. “I imagine it as I have experienced it many times in my career when I have been out of competition due to injuries.

It’s not something that makes me lose sleep, nor do I have any fear of my life after tennis,” Rafael Nadal said. The 14-time French Open champion was asked to elaborate on the risks associated with anesthetic injections.



“You have control of the foot, but no sensitivity. There might be a little more risk when it comes to twisting an ankle. Just as I am playing, with my foot asleep, it doesn’t matter if there is less sensitivity because I go from being lame to being without pain.



It can’t be stretched out over time, but I was able to win the tournament because I could move and run. That did not happen in Madrid or Rome.” In a recent interview, the Frenchman hailed the Spaniard as the greatest athlete of all time.



While speaking about his greatness, the Frenchman compared Nadal to legends like Muhammad Ali, Pele, and Michael Jordan. “For me, Rafael Nadal has achieved the greatest feat in the entire history of sport. Period. He is above Ali, Pelé or Jordan,” Guy Forget said.
