Nadal Announces He Will Return In Brisbane

Rune, Shelton, Murray, Dimitrov also to compete in ATP 250

Rafael Nadal announced on social media Friday that he will make his return in the first week of the 2024 season at the Brisbane International presented by Evie.

“Hello everyone. After a year away from competition, it’s time to come back,” Nadal said in Spanish in a video that has garnered millions of views. “It will be in Brisbane the first week of January. I’ll see you there.”

Two weeks ago the Spaniard confirmed that he would make his return. Now he knows where and when.

Shelton, Rune, Murray Among Stars To Compete In Brisbane

The former World No. 1 played two tournaments this year — the United Cup and Australian Open — before missing the rest of the season due to an injury to the iliopsoas muscle in his left leg, for which he later underwent surgery.

Nadal will compete in Brisbane for the second time. The lefty played the ATP 250 in 2017, when he advanced to the quarter-finals before losing to then-World No. 3 Milos Raonic in three sets.

The tournament has not yet announced Nadal’s participation, but organisers have revealed that Holger Rune, Ben Shelton, Grigor Dimitrov and Andy Murray will also compete in the event.
