Yesterday, the announcement of Rafael Nadal’s participation in the Washington ATP500 tournament which takes place from August 2 to 9 is far from trivial.
That the Spaniard starts his preparation for the US Open so early is a real information and indication concerning his ambition on this US tour but also on his ambitions.
This means that he is also physically ready because it will surely be necessary to chain this deadline with those of Toronto and Cincinnati, of the Maters1000.
As a backdrop to this densified program, there is clearly Nadal’s desire to give himself every chance to arrive in the best conditions at the US Open where he had good results when he was in good shape.
It is also clear that whatever he says, the race for the GC titles remains what guides his career like that of a certain Djokovic who clearly returned to the race after this famous semi-final followed by his title to Roland. Garros.
