Rafael Nadal officially canceled his participation at the ATP tournaments in Doha and Dubai. During the Australian Open, Spaniard had issues with his hip injury, and he still didn’t manage to recover from it.
With that said, he decided to withdraw from the upcoming tournaments in February, in Doha, which starts on the 20th, and Dubai, which kicks off on the 27th.
The doctors estimated that Nadal would be absent from the court for at least two months, so it is expected that he will return for the Monte Carlo tournament. The next grand slam he is expected to participate in is Roland Garros, which he won 14 times.
