Best Bets Brisbane ATP 2019. World number two Rafael Nadal was the top seed and the bookies favorite to win Brisbane 2019…but the Mallorcan withdrew from the tournament today leaving the field open for another winner.
The 32-year-old Nadal had been aiming to return to the ATP Tour for the first time since 7 September, when he retired in the US Open semi-finals against Juan Martin del Potro. Nadal went 45-4 in 2018, including five titles, during a season that saw him sidelined by knee, abdominal and ankle injuries.
Nadal, who underwent the MRI scan on Tuesday, admitted, “There’s always a time difference between here and in Spain. So I spoke with my doctors there yesterday. I went to sleep. When I woke up, they were sleeping, so I had to wait until later today to make the final decision.
“I feel better than four days ago. So the normal improvement is I will be practising. I’ll probably be 100 per cent in five days… But I really believe that I will be 100 per cent ready for Melbourne.”
