Nadal ankle surgery 'went well'

Nadal ankle surgery 'went well'

Nadal's place in the eight-man tournament in London goes to John Isner.

"But unfortunately, I had an abdominal problem in Paris last week and, in addition, I have a [problem] with my right ankle joint that [required] an operation [today]".

12 years later, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga repeated that feat in Canada as well, entering the tournament ranked 15th and playing some rock solid tennis in order to beat world number 1 Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Grigor Dimitrov and Roger Federer to secure the title after four straight Top 10 triumph.

"With this, I hope to be in full health for the next season".

Nadal said on Twitter on Monday that he was still bothered by the stomach muscle issue that forced him to withdraw from last week's Paris Masters.

"It was a complicated year, very good at the tennis level when I was able to play and at the same time very bad as far as injuries are concerned", Nadal said.




"Reflecting on what I've been through in the past year, it's quite a phenomenal achievement", said Djokovic, who was No. 2 last week and hadn't been No. 1 since November 2016. I've been very close to making it for a number of years, but it just hasn't quite happened.

He hasn't competed since he retired from his U.S. Open semifinal against Juan Martin del Potro because of a painful right knee. "Five months ago, it was highly improbable considering my ranking and the way I played and felt on the court".

Having missed the second half of the 2017 season because of his troublesome elbow, Djokovic returned at the start of this year but the injury flared up again at the Australian Open and he made a decision to have surgery on it.

The left-hander excels on the dirt and has won a staggering 11 French Open titles. Anderson came from two sets down to defeat Federer in their Wimbledon quarterfinal in July.

The Serb returned to the number one spot for the first time since 2016 despite his loss in the Paris Masters final against Karan Khachanov.
