Rafael Nadal will not be able to play the Masters Cup. The Mallorcan has made his absence in the competition through its social networks, where it ensures that it ends its season.
"It's been a complicated year, very good at tennis level when I was able to play and turn very bad as far as injuries are concerned"In addition, he confirmed that he will have to go through the operating room due to the abdominal problem, which is why he had to retire from Paris last week:" I have a free body in the ankle joint that has to be removed in the operating room today. dSince the problem in the abdominal muscle also prevents me from playing in London, we take advantage of the moment to remove the free body and avoid future problems."he added.
I am writing these words to you as the end of the season. It has been a complicated year, very good at the tennis level when I was able to play and at the same time very bad as far as injuries are concerned.
