Although he has said that 2024 is likely to be his last year before retirement, Nadal said on Wednesday: "I can't be 100% sure (about retirement) because in the end I've worked hard to get back to competing and if suddenly my fitness allows me to keep going and I enjoy what I'm doing, why would I set a deadline, it doesn't make sense".

He is scheduled to return to action after surgery at the Brisbane International tournament, which starts on New Year's Eve. The Australian Open in Melbourne is from January 14 to 28.
