Nadal: No Paris for me

RAFAEL Nadal will not be playing at the Paris Masters this month.

The tennis number two said he needs to focus on the end of his season rather than partaking in the indoor tournamant held in Bercy – which will surely come as a hard blow to tennis fans in France.

“It’s been a difficult decision to take, but I understand that it is what I need to do right now to prepare well for the end of this season and also for 2012,” said the tennis ace on his Facebook page.

“I hope I can be back in 2012 to that great event in the most beautiful city in the world, and hopefully try to win it one day.”

Last month Rafa announced he would not be playing at the Queen’s Club tournament in west London next year – which he usually treats as a warm-up event for Wimbledon – in favour of a German tournament.
