Tennis – Nadal All Set For Ankle Surgery

Rafael Nadal

Rafael Nadal will miss November’s season-finishing ATP Finals in London as he he is all set to have a surgery on his ankle.

Nadal pulled back from a month ago’s Paris Masters with a stomach muscles damage, which means Novak Djokovic supplanted him as world number one.

The Spaniard, 32, said that since he was all the while enduring with that damage, he would “take advantage of the moment” and have a surgery on his ankle.

American John Isner has Nadal’s spot at the eight-player occasion in London.

Nadal has resigned from two of the three hard-court occasions he has contended at this season – the Australian Open and the US Open – yet won the other, the Rogers Cup.

The Spaniard’s nonappearance from London implies 14-time Grand Slam champion Djokovic will end the year as the world number one for the fifth time in his vocation: level with Roger Federer and Jimmy Connors, and one behind Pete Sampras.
