Injured Rafael Nadal to miss Indian Wells and Miami Open tournaments

The BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells suffered its first major setback as world No. 2 Rafael Nadal pulled out with a right hip injury.

1 spot until the grass-court season in June.

"Hi everyone. Unfortunately, the injury I suffered in Acapulco before starting the tournament is in the same area as the one suffered in Melbourne".

On clay, Nadal will have to defend around 4,680 points, and even if he wins five titles (Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Madrid, Rome and Roland Garros) he would not regain the world no.

Nadal initially hurt his hip in January's Australian Open, when he retired after being down 2-0 in the fifth set of the quarterfinals against Marin Cilic.

'It was very painful to retire from Acapulco and it's very hard as well to not play in the USA.

That said, it sounds more like a convenient way for doctors to get people to return for followup examinations. The new service, called Uber Health , will allow health care providers to book a ride for you.

"I am sure that some of the reason for not playing both Indian Wells and Miami is to give him the best chance possible of staying fit and healthy".

The Spaniard's travails with his fitness began near the end of a year ago when he had to pull out of the Paris Masters and the ATP World Tour with a knee injury.

A three-time victor in the dessert, Nadal fell to Roger Federer in the round of 16 a year ago.

Wawrinka's 2017 season was cut short following a knee operation back in August.

"Coming back from a big surgery is complicated and after having played a few tournaments I have discussed with my team that it is best for me to build on the progress and go back to practice", said Wawrinka. The Swiss has only one French Open title among his 20 Grand Slams. The 2018 French Open will begin from May 27. The setbacks meant that he did not have enough practice before the Australian Open, which exacerbated his injury issues.
