Nadal Pulls Out Of Paris Masters With Knee Injury

"For me it's not about London. For..."

Nadal clinched the year-end number-one ranking with his second-round win against Chung Hyeon on Thursday but he was put through the wringer at times by the Uruguayan in French capital.

"If you do it right, take care of yourself and have some luck, there is no reason you can't be playing at 100 percent at this tournament at the end of the season".

Struggles on the Cuevas serve and a failure to take chances when they arrived made this a far more hard match for Nadal than it needed to be, but it is the Spaniard who goes on to face qualifier Filip Krajinovic in the last eight. "This is my eighth consecutive year in the top 20 in the world and I'm pretty proud of that".

The Spaniard withdrew from the Paris Masters on Friday, and Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray - all missing from the tournament - have also been sidelined by injury during the season.

Rafael Nadal's unbelievable season stalled unexpectedly when the Spaniard injured his right knee during the ongoing Paris Masters.

"I'm going to enjoy today and then see how it goes tomorrow (Saturday)".

"The only one thing i can say is i'm going to do my treatment and try my best to be playing in London but i cannot talk about this now because it's a day that is tough enough for me to have pulled out from here", said Rafa.

The injury has thrown his participation at the World Tour Finals at London's O2 Arena, scheduled to run from November 12 to 19, into doubt. The 31-year-old battled wrist problems in 2014 that caused him to miss the U.S. Open, and he ended his season prematurely in October that year to undergo appendix surgery.
