Nadal Withdraws From Cincinnati

Spaniard won his 35th ATP Masters 1000 title in Montreal

Rafael Nadal’s chase for a 36th ATP Masters 1000 title will have to wait. The Spaniard pulled out of the Western & Southern Open on Sunday, citing fatigue after winning his record-extending 35th Masters 1000 title earlier at the Coupe Rogers in Montreal.

Nadal beat Russian Daniil Medvedev 6-3, 6-0 to record more history at the Canadian Masters 1000. It was the fifth time (2005, 2008, 2013, 2018) the World No. 2 has hoisted the trophy in Canada.

The 33-year-old leads the ATP Tour in wins this season with 41 (41-6) and is in first place in the ATP Race To London, an indicator who will finish year-end No. 1. Nadal has three tour-level titles this year (Rome, Roland Garros). He is next scheduled to compete at the season’s fourth and final Grand Slam, the US Open, which begins 26 August.
