Rafael Nadal says he won't play at next week's Swiss Indoors due to exhaustion. Nadal posted on his Facebook Page that he's "sorry to announce" that he won't be playing. He added that he's spent some "very exhausting weeks" and he has to ''regroup my fitness and my body.'' He says he'll try to play the Swiss Indoors next year.
Nadal was out of action for seven months after hurting his left knee last summer, but he came back strong and beat Novak Djokovic to win the U.S. Open for his 13th Grand Slam title. Nadal has since played in the Davis Cup, lost to Djokovic in the finals of the China Open in Beijing and to Juan Martin del Potro in the semifinals in Shanghai last week.
