Jean-Rene Lisnard Chose Rafael Nadal as the Toughest Player Before Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic

Rafael Nadal shocked the tennis community when he withdrawn from the Roland Garros because of injury concerns. Jean Rene Lisnard praised the Spaniard despite his absence from the tennis court. Lisnard said in a recent interview with l’Equipe that Nadal was the “best” of the four top players.

The Spaniard withdrew from the French Open because of persistent problems with his iliopsoas. He stated that he would be stopping all of his activities this season in order to focus on his full recovery. The 37-year old hinted that he would be returning to the professional tour in 2024. Nadal had earlier pulled out of the tournaments in Monte-Carlo and Rome Open.

The former Monegasque tennis player Jean-Rene Lisnard expressed his admiration for the Spanish player. The retired tennis player spoke about his experiences playing against Roger Federer Novak Djokovic Andre Agassi and Rafael Nadal. During a conversation with L’Equipe the 43-year old said that Nadal was the ‘toughest’ of the four big players. Lisnard said that when teaching his students at the Elite Tennis Center, he uses the 14-time Roland Garros winner as an “example”.

“I played Federer and Djokovic… the best is Nadal.” Each shot is hell. Rafa is my role model when I play Roland Garros for juniors. He has more than 20 Slams and $500 million.

According to the ATP Head2Head statistics, Lisnard has only faced Nadal once in 2006 at the ATP 1000 Monte-Carlo Masters. The 22 Grand Slams winner defeated the Monegasque with a straight set victory.

Rafael Nadal shares update on his successful arthroscopic procedure

The 22 Grand Slams winner underwent arthroscopic surgical surgery on Friday at the Teknon Clinic, Barcelona, to the left psoas. It is estimated that it will take the Spanish player five months to recover fully from surgery. Nadal thanked his doctors on Twitter for the successful surgery.

“Hello everyone. “Hello everyone. As you all know, I had surgery last night. The surgery went smoothly and was performed on my left psoas, which has been keeping me from competition since January. A previous injury to my labrum on the left hip was also [fixed], which will help improve the evolution of the tendon. “I want to thank the doctors Marc Philippon Jaume Vilaro, and Angel Ruiz Cotorro for all their hard work”, he said.

Nadal withdrew as well from the Monte-Carlo Masters because of injury issues. He has won 11 titles in his career.
