Rafael Nadal withdraws from Rolex Paris Masters with stomach injury

May JohnsonNov 01, 2018

Rafael Nadal has pulled out of the Paris Masters with an abdominal injury, meaning Novak Djokovic is guaranteed a return to world No 1 on Monday.

His departure from the tournament followed the withdrawal of Milos Raonic, who pulled out from the second round against Roger Federer due to an elbow injury.

Nadal has not played since the US Open in September, when he suffered a knee injury in the semi-final and his comeback has been now been curtailed.

"But in the past few days, I started to feel a little bit (of an) abdominal (injury), especially when I was serving". "Preceding the match, after I spoke with the doctors here, I went and I did an ultrasound and MRI, and they found some kind of a lesion in the tricep".

Nadal, who was won 17 major titles to Djokovic's 14, added that the match had been agreed over a year ago, a long time before the recent controversy surrounding the regime emerged. It would not be fair and not good for me and for nobody to go inside the court knowing that probably the full tournament will not be possible to play'.

"It was great to be here in Paris for a couple of days and practise with the guys", Nadal told a news conference. In terms of this kind of a stuff, I have to be checking daily about things how it improves.

In a weird trick play, Iowa punter Colten Rastetter threw a attractive 10-yard pass to. a defensive lineman? Yep. I can't just have a pro-style quarterback. "I do not care what anyone says because he is as tough as it gets".

Djokovic issued a similar message, saying: "Of course I'm aware of what's happening and it's sad". But the most important thing for me is to be healthy and have the chance to compete weeks in a row. "Something that I was not able to do this year, playing only nine events and retiring in two". "Maybe I can play today, but the doctor says if I want to play the tournament, I want to try to win the tournament, the abdominal with break for sure".

"I feel like I recovered well from last week", Federer said.

The 16th-seeded Sock saved all four break points he faced in a 6-3, 6-3 win against Frenchman Richard Gasquet, while Zverev advanced 6-4, 6-4 over American Francis Tiafoe.

He will meet seventh seed Kevin Anderson or Georgian Nikoloz Basilashvili in the next round.

In the early action on Wednesday, Kei Nishikori and John Isner kept their hopes of gatecrashing the Tour Finals alive with victories.
