The Spanish Rafael Nadal has entered the list for Wimbledon, which begins on July 1.

The two-time winner of the tournament, in 2008 and 2010, has been in Paris since this Monday, where he can say goodbye to Roland Garros after nineteen appearances and fourteen titles that have crowned him as the best player in the history of clay.

Although his calendar is up in the air and he goes tournament by tournament depending on the feelings he has, the Spaniard appears on the list of those registered for Wimbledon, with the option of protected ranking, which allows him to enter twelve tournaments for having missed a year of competition due to the iliopsoas injury he suffered at the Australian Open in January 2023.

Nadal returned to the competition in January of this year in Brisbane, where he was able to play three matches before suffering a muscle micro-tear that kept him off the court again until Barcelona, ​​where he reached the second round. After the Conde de Godó, Nadal played in Madrid, where he made the round of 16, and Rome, where he reached the second round.

Wimbledon has always been a special place for Nadal, as he played his first Grand Slam there in 2003 and reached five finals between 2006 and 2011.

His last participation dates back to 2022, when he had to withdraw before the semifinals he was going to play against the Australian Nick Kyrgios due to an abdominal injury.
