The former champion of the tournament decided not to participate in the upcoming event due to pain in the abdominal muscles • The Spaniard has been carrying the injury since the Wimbledon tournament



The Canadian Masters tournament champion, Rafael Nadal, announced today (Friday) that he will not compete in the upcoming event due to pain.

The Spaniard recently returned to the training court after experiencing an injury at Wimbledon, but began to feel discomfort and decided to skip Montreal and not risk injury ahead of the US Open that opens at the end of August.

Nadal won 35 of 38 matches to lead the ATP rankings ahead of compatriot Carlos Alcarez, including two major titles for the first time in his career, leaving Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic behind.

Nadal celebrated his 22nd major crown at Roland Garros, defeating Djokovic in the quarterfinals and Casper Roed in the final.

After a well-deserved rest, the Spaniard headed to Wimbledon and reached the semi-finals where he faced Nick Kyrius, but retired after him due to injury.

Following the pain he felt, Nadal decided to focus on training for the US Open. "From the time off and the subsequent return to training, everything went well.

Four days ago I started to increase the activity and yesterday, a small feeling of discomfort started that was still there today.

We decided not to go to Montreal and continue training without forcing anything.

I sincerely thank the tournament director, Eugene, and his entire team for the understanding and support they have always shown me," said Nadal.
