“As it turns out, I have a stress crack in one of my ribs and will be out for 4-6 weeks,” he wrote. “This is not good news and I did not expect this.


“I am sunk and sad because after the start of the season I have had such a good time.”

Nadal added: “I’ve always had that fighting and overcoming spirit and what I will do is be patient and work hard after my recovery. Once again thank you everyone for the support.”
