Nadal withdraws from French Open


Rafael Nadal has been forced to withdraw from the French Open due to a wrist injury.

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.

Although he has been able to play through the pain, the nine-time champion has been left with no choice but to withdraw from the tournament for fear of damaging the joint further.

"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."
