LThe long wait has come to an end. Rafael Nadal, after training at his academy in Manacor and then at the center that bears his name in Greece, landed in Sweden this Wednesday to compete in the Open 250 in Bastad (July 15 to 21).

Nadal has arrived with time to prepare for next week’s debut. And to find his last official match you have to move on May 27 in the first round of Roland Garros with Alexander Zverev.

The Italian Jannik Sinner, who was going to be the first favorite in the draw under the status of world number 1, has been officially eliminated from the Swedish tournament. “I am sad to announce that I have to leave due to fatigue,” Sinner announced on his social networks.

It should be remembered that the player from San Cándido lost on Tuesday in the Wimbledon quarterfinals against Daniil Medvedev and that he needed the presence of the tournament doctor to finish the match.

Nadal’s main obstacles on the way to the Bastad title will be Andrey Rublev and Casper Ruud.
