The decision of Rafael Nadal for the Masters fell. And the new number 1 in the world decided… not to decide. More exactly, the Mallorcan chose to go to London, to gauge their performance on the spot, and will decide afterwards on possible participation or not to the Masters Tournament that it will in the skin of the boss of the circuit, but at the end of which he could once again become dauphin of Novak Djokovic. Forced to throw in the towel at the last moment for his semi-final against Denis Shapovalov at the Rolex Paris Masters due to an injury to the abdominal, Nadal announced Tuesday that the injury in question was not as serious as he feared. A victim only of distention as was feared a tear, the winner of the last US Open, which was a series of fifteen victories rank before being stopped in its tracks last weekend without playing, will, therefore, in London, without being able to guarantee to this day that it will take part in the tournament. “I went in for an MRI in Mallorca and despite a small distension at the level of the right abdominal, I will be going to London. Thursday or Friday, I will begin my adaptation to the service. The idea is to be able to play the Masters. “
Same package, Nadal could be number 1 !

Everything will depend on, to hear the Spanish, if the pain (likely in this case) that he will perceive the service on its first two days of training on-site, i.e. Thursday and Friday (it will happen Friday night in the English Capital), will be bearable. If this is the case, Nadal will play the Masters, which will take place on Sunday. On the other hand, in the opposite case, as in Paris last Saturday, he will have no choice but to surrender, and to leave his place to his compatriot Roberto Bautista Agut. It should be noted that a new defection of its share for the traditional appointment in london of the end of the season only reserved to the best (he has already said package six times before the start of the tournament and was stopped in 2017 after his first game) will not necessarily Nadal to finish in spite of all the year in the first place. The number 1 in the world again since Monday, will remain in effect if Novak Djokovic, who account 640 points behind his rival, is out from the stage, stops in the semi-finals or loses in the final not having won a match in the poules.
