Nadal Withdraws From Indian Wells And Miami Due To Injury

PARIS, France - - Rafa Nadal said on Tuesday he had decided to withdraw from two upcoming Masters 1000 hardcourt events in Indian Wells and Miami due to injury.

The 22-time Grand Slam champion, who has not competed since his Australian Open title defence ended in a second-round loss during which he aggravated a hip problem, said he had started rehab and physiotherapy as instructed by doctors.

''I am sad that I won't be able to compete at Indian Wells and Miami. Very sad not to be there'', read a message on Nadal's Twitter account. ''I'll miss all my US fans but I hope to see them later this year during the summer swing''.

The 36-year-old Spaniard is a three-times champions at Indian Wells having triumphed in 2007, 2009 and 2013. Nadal has reached the Miami final five times but has never won the title and has not competed there since 2017.

''We wish Rafa continued healing, and hope to see him back at the BNP Paribas Open next year'', Indian Wells tournament director Tommy Hass said in a statement.
