TEN­NIS

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - - SPORTS - From Jour­nal Sen­tinel wire re­ports

Rafael Nadal will have to wait an­other year to win the ATP Fi­nals.

The world No. 1 with­drew from the elite, sea­so­nend­ing tour­na­ment af­ter los­ing his open­ing match to David Gof­fin, 7-6 (5), 6-7 (4), 6-4, on Mon­day at the O2 Arena in London.

Nadal pulled out of the Paris Masters at the quar­ter­fi­nal stage 10 days ago and ad­mit­ted ahead of the ATP Fi­nals on the in­door hard-court he strug­gles on, that his knees, which have caused him trouble through­out his ca­reer, were still “not per­fect.”
