Rafa Nadal has premiered Monday, November 4, his eighth reign of tennis. He is number one in the world again, but he does it with an unknown question: knowing if he can play the Masters Cup (November 10-17) and defend that position (he could finish at the top even if he does not participate) or if he can be in the Davis Cup in Madrid (November 18-24). A discomfort in the abdomen in training before the Paris-Bercy semifinals forced him to retire from the last 1,000 Masters of the year. Today there have been tests in Palma, which have been sent to Barcelona for analysis by your doctor, Dr. Cotorro, but the final decision, with all the data, will be taken tomorrow Tuesday.
Just tomorrow is when the draw for the Masters Cup is held, which brings together the best eight of the year in London: Djokovic, Federer, Medvedev, Thiem, Tsitsipas, Zverev, Berrettini and Nadal's doubt. It is a tournament that the left-hander really wants, since he has never won it (two finals) and has lost it up to six times due to injury. If it does not finally go, the favored will be another Spaniard, Roberto Bautista, who is the first reserve to finish as the ninth best tennis player of 2019.
