Injury is not new to the 29-year-old tennis player Rafael Nadal. But when all the tennis fans are looking forward to the historic meeting of the legends Nadal and DJokovic in the semifinal match, he surprised them by announcing that he is pulling out of the ongoing French Open due to wrist injury.
On Thursday, the nine-time champion became the eighth player in the history of tennius to record 200 Grandslam match wins. He shared that he has played with an injection to his wrist during the second round, and if he continued he would be in for a serious injury. “I could play but I started feeling more and more pain,” he shared during a press conference. Nadal agreed that it was indeed a difficult decision for him to make and announce.
It is a major setback to the tennis star as one is not sure if he will be alright by the time of the Wimbledon slated for next month even though the Spanish left hander expressed hope that he would be fit to play for Wimbledon.
