The Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal has confirmed that he will participate in his final Masters in Madrid, which will take place until May 5th.

The legendary Spaniard will take to the court in Madrid despite not being fully prepared to play at his peak.

“I face it with enthusiasm. Playing in Madrid has been something very nice. It is difficult for me to say that I have received the support received here elsewhere in the world. “I'm looking forward to playing here once again. The week has been in some ways good and in some ways not so good.

I don't think I'm ready to play at 100%. I am ready to go out and play tomorrow and for me that is already important. Being able to play for the last time in Madrid means a lot. At least I will be able to enjoy this track again where I have lived very beautiful moments.” Nadal said.

The former world number one will begin his Masters campaign on Thursday, April 25th, with a match against American player, Darin Blanch.

It was previously announced that Nadal will represent Team Europe in the Laver Cup this September in Berlin. Last week, Rafael competed in the ATP 500 tournament in Barcelona, where he was eliminated in the round of 16 by Alex de Minaur.
