Nadal has been struggling with a wrist injury for a couple of weeks but the pain has worsened in recent days, with the Spaniard forced to play with an anaesthetic on Thursday.

"I have to retire from the tournament because I have a problem in my wrist that I have since couple of weeks," Nadal told reporters in Paris.

"Yesterday I played with an injection on the wrist but last night I start to feel more and more pain.

“I know that I cannot finish the tournament. It’s part of life and I hope I’ll come back for many years.

"I will work hard to be fit for Wimbledon. I need a couple of weeks. At the moment it's day by day."
