Rafael Nadal pulls out of Toronto and Cincinnati Masters
Rafael Nadal participated at the Washington Open last week but was ousted in Round 2. Meanwhile, he has withdrawn from the Toronto and Cincinnati Masters due to an injury in his left foot.
Spanish tennis legend Rafael Nadal has withdrawn from the Toronto and Cincinnati Masters ahead of the 2021 US Open, citing an injury in his left foot, reports ATP. Last week, he participated in the Washington Open but lost it in the second round against Lloyd Harris of South Africa.
The same injury following the French Open 2021 forced him to take a 20-day break from the sport, as he had missed Wimbledon and the Tokyo Olympics. Nadal had last won in Cincinnati back in 2013.
As for Nadal's performance this season, he has a record of 24-5, having won just a couple of titles in Barcelona and Rome. Currently, he is ranked fourth in the ATP Singles Rankings.
Earlier, reigning world number one, Novak Djokovic, had also pulled out of both the events, as he looks to recapitulate before the US Open. Also, it would be in a long time that the big three (including Roger Federer) would not be taking part in both the events at the same time.
