Post: Rafael Nadal withdraws from Masters in Monte Carlo


Nadal, eleven-time Monte Carlo Masters winner, withdraws from the tournament

MOSCOW, April 4 – RIA Novosti. Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal announced on his Twitter account that he will not take part in the Masters series tournament, which will be held in Monte Carlo from April 9-16.

In mid-January, after losing in the second round of the Australian Open, Nadal underwent a medical examination that revealed a second-degree iliopsoas injury to his left leg. Rest and anti-inflammatory physiotherapy were given for 6-8 weeks. The Spaniard then withdrew from the grueling Masters at Indian Wells and Miami. In this regard, Nadal entered the top ten in the ATP rankings for the first time since April 2005.

“Hi everyone, I’m not ready to compete at the highest level yet. I won’t be able to play in Monte Carlo, one of the most important tournaments of my career. I still can’t quite play. Keep up the strength and preparation. I hope to be back soon,” wrote Nadal.

Nadal is the most decorated player in Monte Carlo history with 11 wins in 12 finals. The Spaniard also holds the record for most titles in Grand Slam tournaments (22 each), along with Serbian Novak Djokovic.
