Nadal will only play French Open if he can ‘compete well’


April 25, 2024

Rafael Nadal says he will only play at the French Open next month if he feels “capable enough to compete”.

The 14-time champion at Roland Garros, missed the French Open for the first time in 19 years through injury in 2023.

The 37-year-old Spaniard has already indicated he plans to retire after the 2024 season, and will make a farewell appearance at the Madrid Open this week, where he faces American 16-year-old Darwin Blanch in the first round on Thursday.
