Nadal will play in the ATP Finals.

Rafael Nadal had to retire from the Paris Masters due to injury, but he will be able to take part in the ATP Finals in London.

Following a scan on Monday in Mallorca, the world number one has learned that his injury wasn’t as serious as feared.

As such, he’ll travel to London on Wednesday with his trainer Carlos Moya and he’ll try to win the only big title that he has never before lifted, while he’ll also be looking to maintain his number one ranking.

Nadal has qualified for this elite tournament 15 years in a row, but had to withdraw due to injury on six occasions and didn’t want to do so for a seventh time.

Aware of his situation, the organisers could put Nadal’s first match on Monday instead of on Sunday.

Following this tournament, Nadal should feature at the Davis Cup in Madrid, although Albert Ramos is in reserve in case he suffers a setback.
