Rafael Nadal once again has pushed back his decision on his US Open participation. After getting the splint removed from his injured right wrist on Tuesday, Nadal was to have made a final ruling on the US Open either today or Saturday at the very latest.
Now according to a tweet from his public relations officer, Nadal will delay that decision until next week, allowing the World No. 2 more time to test the ailing wrist.
Decision on US Open participation for @RafaelNadal postponed till early next week. No decision today or tomorrow.

Nadal is the defending champion at the US Open. Due to the wrist injury he has not played since a stunning fourth round loss at Wimbledon to Nick Kyrgios.
This upcoming Monday the US Open is expected to release their men’s seeding which will likely include Nadal unless Rafa withdraws earlier in the day.
