Rafael Nadal withdrew from the BNP Paribas Tennis Masters on Friday, but the World No. 1 stayed in town to speak to the media today at the tournament.
In the ATP interview below, Nadal sounds cautious about his recent shoulder injury. The Spaniard says his doctor told him it could “danger” London and the beginning of next year.
Nadal is hopeful about playing the London World Tour Finals as long as nothing “strange” happens, but he oddly reminds listeners that another injury could prevent him from playing the season-ending event. So there’s no guarantee, he says.
Rafa says he’s going back to home to Mallorca where he’ll resume practice later in the week when the shoulder feels better and then head to London next Wednesday or Thursday.
