Injured Nadal out of IPTL


Share post:

NEW DELHI (AP) – Rafael Nadal has withdrawn from the inaugural International Premier Tennis League (IPTL) competition, citing health reasons.

Veteran Indian player Mahesh Bhupathi posted on Twitter today that Nadal had withdrawn before Team India was due to be announced in New Delhi.

The IPTL later confirmed that the 28-year-old Spaniard wouldn’t be playing in the tournament.

Nadal withdrew from the U.S. Open last month, citing a right wrist problem, and was unable to defend his title. He also recently missed Spain’s Davis Cup loss to Brazil.

The IPTL, a city-based team competition, is to be staged at venues in the Philippines, United Arab Emirates, Singapore and India between November 28 and December 13.
