Rafael Nadal suffers Miami Open setback after ankle injury scare

Rafael Nadal suffers Miami Open setback after ankle injury scare

Rafael Nadal's bid to win the ATP Miami Open title for the first time suffered a setback Monday when he failed to finish a workout after an ankle injury .

A spokesman for the Spanish star tweeted: "RafaelNadal felt earlier today and didn't finish the practice. It looks like his ankle is OK however we will see how things evolve."

 

Second seed Nadal, a four-time Miami runner-up, is coming off a run to the quarter-finals at Indian Wells, where he lost to Canada's Milos Raonic.

 

World number three Nadal will have a first-round bye in this week's start to the Masters Series event and open against the winner between Ukraine's Sergiy Stakhovsky and Spain's Nicolas Almagro, with ninth-ranked Czech Tomas Berdych a potential quarter-final foe.

 

Nadal lost to current world number one Novak Djokovic of Serbia in the 2011 and 2014 Miami finals, Russia's Nikolay Davydenko in the 2008 championship match and Swiss star Roger Federer in the 2005 title showdown.

Yes No
THE DAY'S QUOTE

“That was pathetic. No excuse at all. The whole team is responsible. Whoever the captain is, we have to back him and try and support him. The captain has to do so many other stuff. All the 11 guys must back him and support him.” “We have addressed the issue of finishing off the overs on time in the past as well, but it cropped up again. It’s so unfortunate to see Upul going out as he is a crucial player in our set up. He batted well against South Africa and it’s so unfortunate. This can’t happen again,” - Angelo Mathews

FEEDBACK/COMMENTS

Cricket is a game of fine margins and Mathews is set to be a modern great. Hang in their Angie, this team can achieve something on this tour. Thirimane and the youngsters form was a real positive. Prasad was missed. Chameera should be persisted with. If Bairstow was our early outcome could have been very different.
