Rafael Nadal has not been named in court this year due to injury. Confirming this, the Spanish star said he is no longer playing in the final of the tournament, the final of the ATP Tour of London. Nadal said the injury is so serious that the right ankle needs surgery. He also withdrew his name from the Paris Masters last week due to an abdominal muscle problem. Nadal Djokovic confirmed the end of the year of the top of the world ranking, since Nadal did not participate. Meanwhile, the 10th player in the world, John Isner, had the opportunity to play in the final of the ATP.
When I played on the court, it was good, and because of some injuries, some time was really bad. "Nadal said:" I gave the tip of the year.
The 32-year-old Spaniard won the French Open 11 times in June. In addition to Wimbledon and the US Open, the semi-finals were contested. Due to the right ankle injury in September, Huan Martin Dale was forced to leave the court without finishing the game halfway between the US Open semifinal against Potter. Since then, they have not been able to participate in any competitive game.
Nadal said he tried every possible effort to recover at least at the end of the season. I really wanted to play in Paris and London. It is true that ankle injury has been a problem for me in my long time and from the beginning. The stomach problem is associated with it. For that reason, I was forced to withdraw from London. Keeping in mind the future, I do not want to take risks. Similarly, we hope to be in top form next season and return to the field.
In the final of the Paris Masters, Djokovic reached the top spot for the first time since 2016, despite losing the title to Karan Kachanov. In the absence of Nadal, this Serbian is considered a clear favorite of the ATP Final.
