Rafa Nadal confirmed on Wednesday that he will compete in next week’s Cincinnati Open after being forced to withdraw from the pending Canadian Open due to an abdominal injury.

The world number three has opted out of the US Open tuning event in Montreal with the same tension that has curtailed his service move and forced him to lose his Wimbledon semifinal last month.

“(Flying) to Cincinnati tomorrow,” the Spaniard posted next to a photo of himself shirtless and smiling.

“Very happy to play with Cincy again.”

Nadal, who has won a men’s record of 22 major titles, will be the only one of tennis’s Big Three in the hard court tournament draw, as rivals Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic will both be absent.

Federer is still undergoing rehabilitation after knee surgery, while Wimbledon champion Djokovic is unable to participate in the North American tournaments due to his refusal to be vaccinated against COVID-19, which prevents him from entering the two countries.

36-year-old Nadal had not played in Cincinnati for five years after opting to only play in Canada in 2018 and 2019. He also did not participate during the height of the pandemic.

It remains to be seen if the problem will hamper Nadal’s performance in Cincinnati, but the weakened top of the field could still help him.

One can only think that the rapid turnaround in his decision to play after he withdrew from the competition six days ago could be taken as signs of improvement in Nadal’s condition.
