22-time Grand Slam winner Rafael Nadal has pulled out the ATP event in Montreal. The event is scheduled to take place next week, ahead of the US Open.

The World No. 3 hasn’t featured in any of the tournaments after this abdominal tear he suffered during the Wimbledon knockouts. The tennis star took to Twitter to announce his withdrawal from the ATP event.

He started by informing, “From the vacation days and my subsequent return to training, everything has gone well these weeks. Four days ago I also started training the service and yesterday, after training, I had a little discomfort that was still there today.”

Check out his tweet on this update:

The legends continued by assuring that he hopes to return to Montreal again, which he reportedly love.

“I hope to play again in Montreal, a tournament that I love and that I have won five times in front of an audience that has always welcomed me with great affection. I have no choice but to be prudent at this point and think about health”, he concluded.

Notably, the King of Clay won his 14th Roland Garros title this year, adding a record-extending 22 Grand Slam titles to his name. During his Wimbledon 2022 campaign, he reached the semifinal but pulled out with injury ahead of his semifinal clash against Nick Kyrgios.
