Rafael Nadal, the Tennis star from Spain, will take on the big stage once again in the upcoming US Open. The Spaniard missed most of the events in 2020 due to the pandemic and in 2021 due to injuries. He pulled out of the Wimbledon 2022 due to injury as well. The injury-prone Tennis star found it difficult to make a comeback pertaining to injuries.

However, ahead of the US Open, the Spaniard was seen training hard at the Arthur Ashe stadium. The video was shared by a Delfina Novillo on her Instagram story and it went viral right away. She also posted the video on her Twitter account. Fans expressed their relief on seeing their idol toiling it hard ahead of the big event in the United States.

However, speculations regarding the legend's fitness have not ended and it remains to be seen if the star is fully fit or not. He, alongside Novak Djokovic, have a total of twenty-two and twenty-one major trophies respectively.

Rafael Nadal last participated in the US Open in 2019 and went on to clinch the title for the fourth time. He might as well win the title this time and if he does, he might join Roger Federer and Pete Sampras with most titles at the US Open. "First practice on Ashe… focus! @usopen #tennis #NYC

Rafael Nadal will look to do all he can to make a strong comeback in the US Open 2022. After battling injuries for a year in 2021, he will step on the arena, once again, this year. A victory here might put him back on track and he could carry the momentum forward.

Fans are hoping that the veteran might clinch the title already. With Alexandar Zverev confirming that he'll miss out on the event, Rafael Nadal will be the second seed after Daniil Medvedev.
