Injury forces Nadal out of Paris Masters

Injury forces Nadal out of Paris Masters

On Wednesdaym Rafael Nadal, after beating Hyeon Chung 7-5, 6-3 at the Paris Masters, achieved the year-end no. 1 ranking, which - as he admitted in press conference - something impossible to think about, because he started the season as the world no.

He called the trainer to have his knee taped after the second set of his last-16 win over Pablo Cuevas, before insisting he would be fit to play at the season-ending event in London.

"We are at the end of the season".

"The way that i am today i dont see myself playing three more matches, the knee is always bothering a little bit but sometimes its worse", he added.

Rapp claims the 26-year-old was holding him down tightly, but he was able to get away and left the apartment. " Kevin Spacey is taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment", his rep told Variety .

But Nadal could not make it stick, sending a forehand wide to bring Cuevas level, and he soon slipped back to struggling on his opponents' serve.

The last spot is now held by Spain's Pablo Carreno Busta, but Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro can beat him to it by reaching the semi-finals at the Palais Omnisports in Bercy.

He will face ninth seed John Isner in the last eight after the American beat Grigor Dimitrov 7-6 (12/10), 5-7, 7-6 (7/3).

"Of course it's a very tough decision for me, especially here in Paris, which has been the most important city in my career without a doubt", said Nadal, a 10-time French Open champion.
