Nadal pulls out of Rotterdam event

Rafael Nadal announced on Thursday that he was pulling out of next week's ATP tournament in Rotterdam to recover from the back problems that hampered him in Australia, reports AFP. The world number two withdrew from the ATP Cup in Adelaide before the Australian Open, in which he struggled with back pain before losing to Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarter-finals earlier this month. "It is with great sadness that I have to forfeit from Rotterdam," Nadal said in a statement from the tournament organisers. His absence leaves Australian Open runner-up Daniil Medvedev as the top seed, with Tsitsipas, Alexander Zverev and Andrey Rublev also in the draw.
