The 36-year-old began his Latin American exhibition tour in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on November 23 where he defeated World No. 3 Casper Ruud 7-6(8), 6-2.

Rafael Nadal has disclosed that he may have found a solution to his chronic foot injury, which has changed his view of continuity at the highest levels.

"The season has had several very different phases and was totally marked by my physical problems. Everything changed when we found an effective treatment for the foot, which has helped me a lot. That radically changed the perspective of my continuity in high-level tennis," Nadal said in a recent interview with Puntobreak.

Addressing his 2023 Australian Open participation, he said that he plans to give it his all and that he is feeling competitive again.

"I am going to travel there in three weeks with all the illusion of the world and desire to work to do my best and feel competitive," he continued.

The veteran also spoke about Spain’s Davis Cup loss to Croatia. Although it was unfortunate for Spain to lose both of their games against Croatia, he said that defeats are also part of the sport.

"It was a pity. They were two games that could be won, but they ended up losing. That's the sport. Some win and others lose, you go from euphoria to sadness in a very short time. It's disappointing to be eliminated from a competition like this, but we will carry on," he expressed.
