Add Cincinnati to Rafael Nadal’s list of tournament he’s withdrawn from this summer. The former No. 1 missed Wimbledon, the Olympics, the Canadian Open and now the Cincinnati Masters, again due to his left foot injury.
That leaves the Cincinnati Masters — like the Canadian Open — without any of the Big 3 players (Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Nadal). That’s the first time none have played at a summer North American Masters event since all three were together among the top.
Nadal, meanwhile, with just under three weeks before the US Open will return to Spain to get his foot evaluated, then make a decision about the US Open.
Nadal along with Djokovic and Federer are all locked at 20 Grand Slam titles apiece, and the US Open could break the tie. But right now, it appears Djokovic is the only player certain of appearing in New York.
