Rafael Nadal will begin make-or-break new treatment on his chronic foot injury next week which he hopes will save his career.

The 36-year-old won his 14th French Open on Sunday with a comprehensive defeat of Norwegian Casper Ruud.

But Nadal revealed he has only been able to play at his favourite event by taking anaesthetic injections before every match to numb his foot, a procedure he is not willing to continue.

Should the new treatment, radiofrequency ablation to the nerve in his foot, not work then the Spaniard admits he will have to consider surgery, casting major doubt over what remains of his glittering career.
