Rafael Nadal has withdrawn from next week’s Basel indoor tournament because of fatigue.
Our champ announced his decision on his Facebook page.
I sadly announce that I have to pull out of the Swiss Indoors Basel, after seeing my doctor in Spain just after landing from Shanghai.
I am suffering from an over stressing of the knee and the problems where already present at the tournament in Shanghai which now forces me to take a time off on advice of my doctor.
After two great weeks in China, with the title in Beijing and the final in Shanghai it is time for some rest.
I want to send a special message to the many tennis fans in Switzerland which have always showed great support and respect also on my matches with Roger.
Hope to see you next year.
