Rafael Nadal (652nd, Spain) will not participate in the Men’s Professional Tennis (ATP) Tour Indian Wells Open (total prize money of $8,995,555).

Nadal said on social media on the 7th (Korean time), “I am very sad to have to withdraw from the Indian Wells tournament.”

“Everyone knows how much I love this place and how much I love playing here. That’s why I came here early and trained,” he said. “But I trained hard and tested at the weekend, but I can’t play at the highest level.” “I realized I wasn’t ready to play,” he explained.

Nadal, a 37-year-old veteran who has won 22 major singles championships, has been unable to play properly since the Australian Open in January last year due to a hip muscle injury.

He made his comeback at the Brisbane International held in Brisbane, Australia in January of this year, but suffered from leg muscle pain and was unable to participate in this year’s Australian Open.

The Indian Wells tournament is the first ‘Masters 1000’ tournament held this year.After the four major tournaments and the ATP Finals, which is a year-end king of kings, there are a lot of ranking points at stake.

The tournament began with the finals on the 6th local time, and Nadal was scheduled to play the first round against Milos Raonic (224th, Canada) on the 7th.

Instead of Nadal, Sumit Nagal (101st place, India) will play Raonic in the first round as a lucky loser. 섯다
