Rafa was absolutely shattered to hear about the vicious attack

The news of Rafael Nadal pulling out of French Open has come as a shocker to all. The nine time French Open champion has withdrawn due to a left wrist injury.

“Yesterday I played with an injection,” the 29-year-old told a news conference on Friday. “Yesterday evening I started to feel more and more pain and today I felt I could not move my wrist.”

“Nine times in my career I have been able to be healthy here in Paris and win this tournament.This is a tough moment and the toughest press conference I have ever had to give but it’s not the end,” Nadal said.

To avoid risking his wrist of any more injury, the decision to pull out was taken,  just 24 hours before he was due to face compatriot Marcel Granollers in Round 3.
