The last few months have been tough for Rafael Nadal. After a stellar 2022, his 2023 has been quite nightmarish. He faced consecutive defeats at the United Cup and faced an early exit at the Australian Open. The 22-time major champion hasn’t been able to step on the court since then and was forced to withdraw from his beloved Roland Garros for his surgeries.
After the surgeries, Nadal has been spending some quality family time. He was in Greece for more than a week during his recovery period. His recent Instagram post, reveals more about his trip and off-court time.
