Rafael Nadal has been a spectator on tour since the Australian Open. He had issues in his left psoas muscle and underwent surgery in June. Since then, Nadal has been recovering from the injury and has played four matches this year. He had started withdrawing from events after January and finally decided to go under the knife as the injuries had become severe.
Nadal was last seen at the Mallorca Championships, cheering for his friend, Feliciano Lopez, who was playing in his last tour event. Nadal’s time on the tour is ending, but he has been taking sufficient rest to make a final comeback. The Spaniard posted a picture on Instagram where he was seen spending quality time with his wife and son on a yacht.
“Most adorable family pic I’ve seen! Thank you for sharing… How cute is the little Rafa Jr!!!”.
The picture was on a yacht, and the fans were thrilled to see Nadal with his baby boy. His wife, Maria Francisca Perello, was standing beside him as he was holding the baby.
Rafael Nadal giving priority to his family
Nadal’s son Rafael was born last October and seems to be spending his time with his father. The 37-year-old posted his son’s picture for the first time on Instagram. The picture was taken in Greece, where the 20-time Grand Slam champion is finally spending peaceful family time.
The 14-time French Open champion explained after the birth of his son that his responsibilities had changed. Since he became a father, his priorities have shifted to spending time with his family. Nadal was also spotted with his family during the Australian Open this year. The family went on a cruise together with the baby. He was also seen celebrating his grandmother’s 92nd birthday a few months ago.
