The Roland Garros tournament may become the last in the career of Spaniard Rafael Nadal in the world of tennis, due to a rare bone disease.
And the newspaper “Marca” revealed that Nadal has been suffering from a rare disease called “Syndrome de Müller-Weiss” since he was 19 years old in 2005, and he still suffers from it until now.
This syndrome causes great pain in the joints and often does not allow exercise at a high level, as it is the cause of deformity in the middle and back of the foot.
The disease can affect both feet, but in Nadal’s case, he only suffers from it in his left foot.
In previous statements about his injury, Nadal said: “I am very clear about that. I’m old (35) enough not to hide things. I don’t know what could happen anymore, I have what I have on my feet. If we can’t find a solution, it becomes very difficult for me.
He continued: That’s it. I enjoy every day because I am lucky to be here, without thinking too much about what might happen in the future. Of course I will continue to struggle to find a solution, but at the moment we do not have a solution. The past three and a half months haven’t been easy for me, that’s the only thing I can say.
