Nadal resigned from Montreal due to "small annoyances"

The Spanish tennis player assured that he must be "prudent at this point and think about health"

The Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal announced this Friday that he is giving up playing the Master 1000 tournament in Montreal, which will be held between August 7 and 10, due to some "small discomfort" he suffered when he was training the service.

"Since the vacation days and my subsequent return to training, everything has gone well these weeks as far as training and preparation are concerned," Nadal explained in a statement.

«Four days ago I also started training the service and yesterday (Thursday), after training, I had a little discomfort that was still there today. We have decided not to travel to Montreal and continue with the training without forcing it », he added.

Nadal, winner of 22 Grand Slam titles, assured that he must be "prudent at this point and think about his health", alluding to the accumulation of injuries he has suffered in recent years.

However, he was optimistic: "I hope to play again in Montreal, a tournament that I love and that I have won five times in front of an audience that has always welcomed me with great affection."

"I sincerely thank the director of the tournament, Eugène (Lapierre) and his entire team for the understanding and support they have always shown me and today was no exception," concluded the Majorcan tennis player.
