Injury forces Nadal to apologize for not participating in "Dubai Tennis"

The Spanish world number two, Rafael Nadal, apologized for not participating in the "Dubai Duty Free" tennis tournament, which begins next Sunday, and will be held in its 29th until the 20th of this month, with prizes amounting to 1.9 million dollars.

Nadal said in a tweet on his official account on "Twitter": "I thank the organizing committee for the" Dubai Duty Free "tennis tournaments for sending me the invitation card to participate in this year's edition, especially since the desire was great to return to the Dubai Championship and compete for its title.

He added, "The invitation card from the Dubai championship was appreciated by me, but I renew my apology to the tennis lovers in Dubai and the organizing committee, for being physically not yet ready to play the matches."

Nadal continues with this absence for the third week in a row from the championships, due to a lower back injury that had previously kept him out of the international "Rotterdam" championship at the end of last month.
