Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal, pulled out of ATP finals yesterday (Nov 13) as a result of a knee injury that occurred during his round-robin defeat by Belgian David Goffin.

“I‘m not ready to play… I fought a lot knowing it was my last match of the season,” said the world number one, following to his 7-6(5), 6-7(4) and 6-4 defeat by Goffin.

Yesterday’s withdrawal means that Nadal, who claimed the French and U.S. Open trophies this year to increase his grand slam haul to 16 titles, has yet to win the season-ending tournament.

He further added that, “I was not enjoying it today so it was no fun to play like this. But I had an unforgettable season.”
