Nadal withdraws from Montreal tournament because of abdominal injury

'Everything has been going well. However, yesterday, after my normal practice, I felt a slight bother on my abdominal and today it was still there,' Nadal said in a statement.

The National Bank Open lost some more star power on the eve of the tournament as five-time champion Rafael Nadal announced his withdrawal Friday due to an abdominal injury.The news came hours before the unveiling of the draw for the annual ATP Tour event and a day after the withdrawal of Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic.Neither pullout was a big surprise. Djokovic isn’t vaccinated against COVID-19 and isn’t allowed to enter Canada while Nadal is still recovering from a muscle tear that forced him to withdraw before his semifinal match at Wimbledon last month.“I have been practising for a while now without serving and started with serves four days ago. Everything has been going well. However yesterday, after my normal practice, I felt a slight bother on my abdominal and today it was still there,” Nadal said in a statement. “After speaking with my doctor, we prefer to take things in a conservative way and give a few more days before starting to compete.”Story continues below advertisementRead more: Unvaccinated tennis star Novak Djokovic pulls out of Montreal tournamentNadal has won 22 Grand Slam singles titles over his career, one more than Djokovic.
