Citing “personal reasons”, Rafael Nadal officially withdrew from the Paris Masters next week. Nadal, who is battling appendicitis, will play through the Basel event but will forego the final Masters 1000 event of the season.
The withdrawal likely also indicates Nadal will miss the London Finals so he can undergo surgery to remove his inflamed appendix.
Nadal has never won the Paris Indoors.
The tournament also announced the withdrawals of Ernests Gulbis and Marin Cilic.
