Rafael Nadal says that he does not have high expectations as he gets ready to make his return to competitive action, but many of his True Live Betting fans believe that he’ll make it very far.
True Live Betting fans saw that the 11-time Grand Slam winner, 26-years-old, did not play since he lost to Czech Lukas Rosol in June 2012 at Wimbledon due to inflammation in his left knee and a partial tear of the patella tendon.
The player’s planned return at the end of last year was set back due to illness and price per head sportsbooks know that the player is set to play at three events on his favoured clay, which will start on February 4 in Vina del Mar, Chile, and taking in the Brazil Open in Sao Paulo as well as the Mexico Open in Acapulco.
However, the French Open champion said that his immediate focus is on fitness instead of finals, and the player’s True Live Betting fans also believe that he should concentrate on keeping fit before anything else.
He told reporters: “Well I am going to play (after) a long time in a tennis tournament, professional tennis tournament, after seven months.
“The motivation, the illusion is big, so very happy to be back in the competition but just you know, with patience to know how the knee will answer after a long time without the top level.
“The most important thing for me is the knee…that I can support the pain of the knee and then if I am able to play these three tournaments in a row I think it will work very well for me because I will have three important weeks to prepare for the rest of the season.
“I know that the first three tournaments are going to be difficult in terms of results but I am going to try everything. I will need a few weeks to see how things improve.”
