Injury woe forces Nadal to quit Paris Masters

Rafael Nadal's participation at the ATP Finals in London is in doubt after the world No 1 withdrew from the Paris Masters with a knee injury before his quarter-final match. "It's a tough situation but I tried my best".

"For me it's not about London it's about longer term", Nadal said.

The 31-year-old Nadal became the oldest player to top the rankings in its 44-year history. It's a very demanding tour, it's not easy.' Croft also spoke about Nadal, who may not play at the ATP Finals due to a knee injury: 'When I listen to that interview it does have a sense that maybe he is thinking more towards not playing than playing. "But unfortunately, it was impossible for me to return to the court in the same condition as last night", Nadal said. Let's see. I'm going to do my treatment. "In the past it worked well".

Nadal was quoted to be saying by PTI, "Yesterday (Thursday), the pain was very strong but it was not the moment to stop".

Nadal has fought back this year from a series of injuries, winning the French and US Open titles.
