Rafael Nadal has finally made it to London with the aim of competing in Wimbledon, which is all the more remarkable given that this will be the 22-time Grand Slam champion's first appearance at SW19 since 2019. The Mallorcan declared he would be taking a brief sabbatical to receive treatment for his foot after winning the French Open, where he overcame Casper Ruud in the championship match to claim his 14th Roland Garros trophy.
The World No. 4 was recently seen working out with Grigor Dimitrov at Wimbledon after the treatment was effective in making the Spaniard well enough to practise on grass. Tennis fans were ecstatic to see the former World No. 1 on the verge of making a long-awaited return to the competition. The 36-year-participation old's in the Grass Major is now all but certain, but he still needs to confirm it.
Due to a participation ban for world number one Daniil Medvedev and an injury to Germany's second-ranked Alexander Zverev, Wimbledon winner Novak Djokovic will enter the tournament as the male top seed. Although 22-time Major champion and top seed Novak Djokovic remains the favourite, he can still be challenged.
