He will not play for Spain in the Davis Cup!

Raf’s style of play is catching up with him and this is not a good sign for Men’s ATP Tour. But Andy Murray, Djokovic and del Potro will make hay while Nadal and Federer and Nadal seem to be unable to dominate in the way that Federer has over the past 5 some years.

I guess winning early cost a lot of his physical health and match readiness.

From AP:

MADRID, Spain (AP) — Rafael Nadal pulled out of the season-ending Masters Cup in Shanghai on Monday, citing fatigue after a long season and the need to prepare for the Davis Cup final.

The world’s top-ranked player made the announcement on his Web site, describing his withdrawal as “one of the most difficult decisions in my career.”

Nadal, who won two Grand Slam titles and the Olympic gold medal this year as he supplanted Roger Federer at No. 1, said he was physically rundown.
