Rafael Nadal will make his first competitive appearance in Turin, Italy, at the Nitto ATP Finals and is hopeful that a change of location will help him regain his best form.
I am visiting Turin for the first time. That's awesome because it means that in the end, we have a broader knowledge of the world, a wider range of experiences to draw from, and a wider variety of fans to cheer for. The event, he noted, is being performed in Northern Italy for the second time after 12 years in London.
"London was amazing—we'll never do it again." Turin follows. In Italy, you can expect a wildly enthusiastic crowd. Therefore, I can't wait to take in the action at this year's [Nitto ATP] Finals in beautiful Turin. "I hope that helps."
Nadal had a career-best start to the 2022 season, winning 20 consecutive matches and breaking a Grand Slam record at the Australian Open. However, since the US Open, he has played only one tour-level singles match as he became a father for the first time and recovered from some of the injuries he has battled this season.
