World No. 3 intends to take part in the 2021 French Open. But Rafa claimed after the 1000 circuit at Monte Carlo, he’s still not in his peak form and morale to win the prestigious French tournament. He further mentioned winning a tournament will make it ‘easier‘ for him to claim his 14th French title.

The Spaniard went for a training session to improve his performance. Later he took part in the Barcelona Open and faced Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas in the finals. Further, the Spaniard won the match with a score of 6-4, 6 (6)-7 (8), 7-5, and claimed his first title in 2021.

Rafael Nadal is back to his training session for the upcoming Roland Garros. We might witness Rafa continuing his legacy on the Frech clay court.
