Rafael Nadal vs Fernando Verdasco


Rafael Nadal decided not to play in Barcelona where he was expected to attempt to win his sixth title in a row. He has announced his decision to withdraw from the Barcelona Open BancSabadell organisers confirmed yesterday and will hold a press conference at the tournament at noon on Tuesday in order to explain the reasons behind his decision.

“I am really sorry not to be able to play in Barcelona, more than any other tournament, but this year after the win in Monte Carlo my body is asking me to rest. I repeat that I’m especially sorry not to play there, because I would like it to be understood that it really is that way, because it is played in my club and it is my home tournament," Nadal said.

"I want to extend my thanks in advance to the members of the club, the organisers of the tournament, and all of the fans for their understanding. Tomorrow I will be in Barcelona and will be available for the organisers.”


Barcelona Open tournament director Albert Costa said: “We wish Rafa the best of luck. We know that this has been a difficult decision for him to take. A player also has to know when to listen to his body. But the tournament has only just begun and we have a week of the best tennis ahead of us. Rafa’s withdrawal is a pity but the tournament will go on and will continue strongly and with a great draw."

“The Real Club de Tenis Barcelona-1899 wants to recognise everything that Rafa Nadal has done for the tournament, and also for the club. We will always be grateful and we wish him all the best,” added Albert Agustí, President of the Real Club de Tenis Barcelona.
