Rafael Nadal on course to make season-ending ATP Finals – report
Rafael Nadal is expected to compete at next week’s ATP World Tour Finals despite his latest injury.
The 17-time Grand Slam winner was due to play his first match since the US Open semi-final at the Paris Masters last week, but he pulled out due to an abdominal injury.
When asked if you would be able to compete in the season-ending event in London, he replied: “I would love to be in London of course,” adding “I just go day by day, as I did all my tennis career.”
The Daily Mail, though, reports that he “will be in the draw for the ATP Finals”.
“According to senior sources at the ATP, the Spaniard is due to fly into the capital later this week from Mallorca to prepare for the climax of the regular season,” the report added.
Djokovic, Roger Federer, Alexander Zverev, Kevin Anderson, Marin Cilic, Dominic Thiem and Kei Nishikori are the other players who will compete at London’s O2 Arena from November 11-18.
