  • World number one Nadal through to last eight of Paris Masters

"I'm going to do my treatment, do my best to be playing in London, but I can not talk about that now because (it) is a day that is tough enough for me to pull out from here", he said.

'I feel like home here and for the relationship that I have with the French Federation, with everybody, it's a very tough day for me.

"I did not expect this at all, I was ready to play but then I heard he had pulled out", said the Serb.

The 31-year-old said he would try his best to be present at the eight-man event which takes place from Nov 12-19 at the O2 in London, but his focus was on the long term.

"For me it's about the longer term". "I'm going to go back, check again with the doctors (like) I did after Shanghai", Nadal said. As the match against Cuevas went on, Nadal's movement looked restricted and he lacked his usual speed and mobility around court.

Gender inequality widening after decade of progress - WEF
Women in the United States do find parity with men in educational attainment and get close on metrics of health and survival. The further away the score is from 0, the higher the "distance to parity" in the country for that sub index appears to be.

"I don't like to stop during the match, even if I've had to do it a couple of times in my life". While he was serving for the match, Nadal hardly had any spring as he double-faulted. "It's not the thing that I love to do".

But knee problems, which have dogged his career, resurfaced in Shanghai last month, causing him to miss last week's tournament in Basel.

After his win over Uruguay's Pablo Cuevas, Nadal acknowledged on Thursday night that his knee was "not 100 percent fit", reports Efe. He began the year with a five-set loss to Roger Federer in the Australian Open final. He has only reached the final once, on his debut in 2007, losing to David Nalbandian.

The 16-time Grand Slam champion needed one win at the Paris Masters to end the year as world No. 1, a feat he accomplished at the expense of South Korean Hyeon Chung in the round of 32.
