Rafael Nadal hopes to be fully fit for the ATP Finals in London
09 November, 2019, 20:13
The 33-year-old took to Twitter on Friday to provide an update on his fitness, stating he is "taking it day by day", after he was forced to withdraw from the Paris Masters due to an abdominal tear, though doubt remains as to whether he will be able to participate through the whole tournament in the English capital.

Speaking after his Paris Masters win about his chances of claiming a record-equaling sixth year-end number one finish, Djokovic said: "There's always a chance that I win all my matches in London, that I play well".
Nadal, who has never won the ATP Finals, dethroned his old rival from the top of the rankings this week and will be hoping to seal the year-end spot despite injury doubts ahead of the tournament, which starts on Sunday.
Asked about the prospect of their future battles, Tsitsipas said: "I guess you could say we are just getting started", he told reporters at the 02 Arena.
Nadal is bidding to clinch the year-end No. 1 spot in the ATP rankings for a fifth time - he is now 640 points ahead of Djokovic - but comes into the tournament under a cloud.
"I think they're super-good - they say they're the future of our sport, but they're the present", Nadal said. "With my training so far I don't have any kind of problem, I feel ideal, I don't have any kind of pain".
"I'm confident that I can be very competitive but of course it's a tournament that you will face the top guys from the beginning so you need to be 100 percent ready".
"I think the next two or three years are very exciting because the other guys are still there and playing the best tennis in the world".
Roger Federer has won four titles in 2019 but his season will be remembered for the one that got away at Wimbledon, where he held two championship points on his own serve before eventually succumbing to Djokovic.
"At this stage of my career in terms of goals and achievements obviously that's right at the top".
"I usually go on holiday during that week but I knew it was a great opportunity to play in front of new crowds and see a part of the world that I do not really know". Zverev recovered from a poor first half of the year to qualify for London, and Berrettini made the semis of the US Open and picked up two titles to become the first Italian to qualify for the season-ending finals since Corrado Barazutti 1978.
