Rafael Nadal's schedule after Wimbledon 2022

Rafael Nadal in the press conference he held in Mallorca practically confirmed his presence at Wimbledon. The Majorcan tennis player. he has stated that he will leave for London where, before playing the third slam of the season (his last participation dates back to 2019 when he was defeated in the semifinals by Federer) he will play two exhibition matches in Hurlingham.

In those days the Spaniard will also participate in a golf tournament which is his other sporting passion. After Wimbledon, Rafael Nadal will take another break and then fly to America. The twenty-two-time slam winner confirmed his willingness to participate in the Roger Cup, the Canadian 1000 who managed to triumph five times in his career (the last in 2019 against Medvedev) before facing the US Open, the last slam of the year.

Nadal also stated that the foot treatment continues to work and he would therefore like to play the two slams and the Canadian 1000 between now and the end of the season.

Nadal has not played in a Wimbledon final for over ten years

During his career, Rafa played in five finals at the London slam, triumphing on two occasions (2008 and 2010).

He hasn't played a final since 2011 when he had to surrender to Novak Djokovic. Since then, between injuries and unhappy first rounds, he managed to do well again in the years 2018 and 2019 when he only had to surrender to the other two historical rivals Djokovic and Federer.

The Manacor bull, thanks to the success at Roland Garros not only stretched over Djokovic and Federer for the number of majors won, but also further improved the record for percentages of games won in the history of tennis.

The 36-year-old Majorcan is currently first with 83.31%, the result of 1058 victories and only 212 defeats.
Behind him is Novak Djokovic who is chasing 83.13% (1005-204) who lost a little after the quarterfinal elimination of the French slam against the Spaniard.

At Wimbledon, therefore, the dualism between them will continue for the conquest of the slam, but the competition will be decidedly fierce even with possible outsiders ready to lift the trophy of one of the most fascinating tournaments in the world.
