World No. 1 Rafael Nadal has withdrawn from the year’s final Masters 1000 event in Paris. The nine-time Grand Slam winner cited a left shoulder injury for his withdrawal.

Releasing a statement on his official site, the Spaniard had this to say.

“I cannot play because of tendinitis in my left shoulder. I need to rest for six or seven days. It is nothing to be worried about but the doctor told me I have to spend those days doing intensive treatment and functional rehabilitation with physiotherapy,” said Nadal.

“I’m very sorry for the tournament organizers, who’ve always treated me in a very special way, and especially sorry for all my fans in France and in Paris that I won’t be able to be with them in one of my favorite cities in the world,” added Nadal.

After a grueling Asian swing, which he took part in three events, Nadal will rejoin the ATP World Tour for the season Finale in London.

Nadal is assured the world No. 1 ranking this year.

The Paris Masters will feature Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, and Andy Murray.
