After practice with Rafael Nadal, Emil Ruusuvuori speaks.

After practicing in Spain, Emil Ruusuvuori congratulated Rafael Nadal "for a great practice". 

 Ruusuvuori, ranked 69th, appeared to have a chance to hit with Nadal on Tuesday. 22-time Grand Slam champion Nadal announced his comeback in Brisbane.

Since announcing his comeback date, Nadal has been preparing for it. Nadal trained with 24-year-old Ruusuvuori for 2024.

Former world No. 7 Gasquet said he's confident Nadal would win matches after witnessing how he looked on the court. He said it took a while for him to return, but I felt he was pain-free.

Like save and share

His 2024 performance will be good. First, it takes time. He'll be competitive, no doubt. Uncertain if it will occur in Australia in March or April.

I have no idea what level (he will play at) or what to expect, but I don't care

I'm happy to be back and excited to work hard to have fun and be competitive,
