Injury forces Rafael Nadal out of Indian Wells and Miami Open
Rafael Nadal has withdrawn from the upcoming Indian Wells and Miami Open tournaments due to injury.
Nadal, who also pulled out of the Mexican Open earlier this week, continues to struggle with the long-running hip injury that also plagued him at the Australian Open.
The 16-time major winner wrote on his official Facebook Page: “Hi everyone. Unfortunately, the injury I suffered in Acapulco before starting the tournament is in the same area as the one suffered in Melbourne.
“I won’t be able to play in Miami or Indian Wells as I need to recover.
“It was very painful to retire from Acapulco and it’s very hard as well to not play in the USA.
“I will miss you and I will do everything that’s possible to be back there in 2019. Thank you.”
