Final for Nadal today… and there is a rumour that he could announce retirement….
Reason: he recently announced that he suffers from the Muller-Weiss syndrome, a degenerative foot condition that only gets worse with no cure. He actually plays/lives with constant pain, and now said he rather gets a new foot than winning Roland Garros.

So if he wins #22, will he end on a high note?

Probably rumour. His manager is currently denying reports he's not playing Wimbledon. Plus, ....

"I am confident and I trust I can return [to Roland-Garros]," Nadal said, according to Eurosport.

“I accept things as they come, I have no intention of making it seem like a farewell.

"We keep working to find a solution to my foot injury. My intention is to return to Roland-Garros next year."

Up to him whether he wants to end on a high note , or whether to end in a R2 or R3 loss at an insignificant event while ranked outside the top100 (the likely path of Roger and some other former top players not in the top 100 anymore).

Keep on working on a solution…. Read about the condition: there is no solution, only further deterioration that will have major impact on the rest of his life.

He deadened the foot, playing without any feelings. Is that a step too far? He's also contemplating surgery.

He didn't answer whether he needed TUEs for the treatment nor how many injections he took.

He looked and sounded very emotional after his match… it did sound like a goodbye from a man in semi-denial.

From the internet: Mueller-Weiss disease is a rarely diagnosed deformity where the navicular bone undergoes spontaneous osteonecrosis in adults. Until now, there is no widely accepted operative treatment for this unusual disease.

Afterwards he said that he cannot and will not play like this anymore… so I think he totally numbed his foot in order to have a shot at #14. But I would not be surprised if we - like last year - do not see him a a court anymore this season. And maybe never again…
