Nadal Ends 2016 Season Due To Wrist Injury
Spanish superstar set to return in 2017
Rafael Nadal’s season has come to an end due to a wrist injury.
“I am forced to stop and start preparing the 2017 season," Nadal wrote on his Facebook page on Thursday. "Now it is time to rest and start preparing intensively the 2017 season. I am very saddened for not being able to play next week in Basel since I have a great memory of the tournament and the final played against Roger Federer last year. I won’t be able to compete either in Paris-Bercy, where the crowds and the FFT staff have always treated me so well. Now it is time to rest and start preparing intensively the 2017 season."
Nadal compiled a 39-14 match record during the 2016 season, including two titles at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters (d. Monfils) and the Barcelona Open BancSabadell (d. Nishikori).
