Rafael Nadal leaves the US Open
Posted on: October 20, 2016, 07:55:44 PM

Once a world No 1 and 14-time Grand Slam title
winner Rafael Nadal shut down his season on
Thursday to concentrate instead on recovering full
fitness for a fresh trophy assault in 2017.

The 30-year-old has been plagued by physical
problems and has now gone through a second
successive campaign without adding to his
majors collection.

A wrist injury forced him to withdraw from the
French Open before the third round and kept him
on the sidelines until the Olympics.

"It is no secret that I arrived to the Olympic
Games short of preparation and not fully
recovered, but the goal was to compete and win a
medal for Spain. This forced recovery has caused
me pain since then and now I am forced to stop
and start preparing the 2017 season," Nadal wrote
on Facebook.

"I won't be able to compete either in Paris-Bercy,
where the crowds and the staff have always
treated me so well. Now it is time to rest and start
preparing intensively the 2017 season."
Nadal's long-time rival Federer, the holder of a
record 17 Grand Slam titles, called time on his
season in July after suffering a knee injury.
