Raging Bull, Meet Wimbledon


El Nino, Raging Bull, King of Clay — all are nicknames earned during Rafa Nadal's hall-of-fame tennis career. With 22 major titles he holds the crown and has his sights set on Wimbledon after already winning the 2022 Australian Open and French Open titles.


Muller Weiss


Not as well known is that Nadal has been battling Mueller-Weiss syndrome. Spontaneous osteonecrosis of the navicula, with its subsequent dorsal collapse and talonavicular arthritis, is a tough draw for an elite athlete. Nadal was diagnosed in 2005, the year of his first grand slam title. Injections, activity modifications, and 5 months off the tour in 2021, have all helped him, but the watch is on for when Mueller Weiss will force him to hang up his racquet.
