“Two days before the tournament I was…”

Rafael Nadal’s victory at Roland Garros 2022 sparked reactions around the world. The Spanish phenomenon came out very hard during the BNL Internazionali in Italy, thanks to the pain in his foot that has been tormenting him since 2005.

He even feared Majorcan would miss the second season major, instead Rafa achieved another legendary feat. Having survived two real fights against Felix Auger-Aliassime and Novak Djokovic, the former world number one benefited from an injury to Alexander Zverev in the semi-finals.

The last act was a monologue by Nadal, who had only six games left for Casper Rudd. Despite the pain in his foot, the Iberian defeated the competition in the first half of the season. Successes in Australia and Paris allowed him to climb to 22 slams, surpassing Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic in all-time standings.

Rafa will undergo a new foot treatment this week, hoping to be ready for Wimbledon. In a long interview with the ATP website, Nadal told a strange anecdote related to this version of Roland Garros.

Rafael Nadal surprised everyone by communicating in his conversation with atptour.com that he had to make a series of modifications to his racket, in order to adapt to the changing tennis that exists today, stressing that tennis is now more offensive, even on mud, and there are few tennis players Who practice classic style on this deck, one of them is Rod.

“I’ve been conditioning things, for example, my racket,” he said before revealing the most surprising thing. “I changed the weight and the strings, and I put more drive in the head of the racket to get more power.”

“Two days before the tournament I used my old racket again, thanks to Babolat setting me up one afternoon. I wasn’t satisfied with the new racquet to play on clay, but now I’m going to play with it again,” he revealed.

According to Ian MacVeigh, Head of Pain Unit at CEMTRO Clinic, the process is not new, but it is the first time it has been used for such a problem. Explaining the mechanics of the process, he said, “It is done with a needle with an active tip with an electrode.

It is inserted into the damaged area and emits radio wave pulses for 20 milliseconds with a pause of 480. It does not destroy tissues, but rather produces neuromodulation in the nerve. With the electric and magnetic field, the pain fibers are changed and with it their transmission.”
