Rafael Nadal was diagnosed Müller-Weiss Syndrome early in his career and it seemed like there was only some time before he would have to quit tennis to save his foot or that his syndrome would not allow him to continue for more than a few years. But Rafa has continued to defy the odds and is still going strong, having won 22 Grand Slams, the highest in men’s tennis history. Following his recent win at the French Open in 2022, he revealed he had to inject himself with anesthetics at Roland-Garros to deal with the pain.
Rafa underwent radiotherapy ablation after Roland-Garros to cut the pain nerves so he could play more tournaments without numbing his foot. Werner Bartena Southgerman newspaper The journalist spoke to German orthopedists who are skeptical about Rafael Nadal’s diagnosis. Said: “This illness and top-class sport cannot go together. I don’t think he has necrosis (numbness) of the bone because the disease progresses and it’s difficult to do top-level sport for several hours.”

German doctor believes Rafael Nadal doesn’t have Müller-Weiss Syndrome.
They also went into the various aspects of Mueller-Weiss disease. Said: “The required dose for that kind of pain would have to be enormous and he couldn’t hit the ball anymore and he couldn’t go on for more than one set. It’s hard for me to believe he has structural bone damage when he’s constantly putting himself through the incredible exertions of a top athlete. Also, Mueller-Weiss syndrome occurs on both sides of the foot.”
They believe it would take a great deal of dosing for him to play games at such a high level for so long. They also said that it could also be possible that Nadal doesn’t have the syndrome he thinks he has. But that would mean questioning the knowledge of the doctors Nadal has been working with for years. However, there is also a possibility that German doctors do not know all the facts about his foot and they make certain assumptions for these conclusions.
