Rafael Nadal to play in Paris Masters next month

Rafael Nadal

Rafael Nadal won the French Open earlier this month scripting history along the way, equaling Federer’s 20 Grand Slam titles. The World No. 2 beat Novak Djokovic in a great battle to win this year’s Roland Garros title. It was a juicy final clash between modern greats.

Even though Nadal said this month that he was unsure whether he would be back on a match court in 2020, he has now decided to prolong his season and appear in Paris Masters in November.

The Spaniard posted a picture on Twitter on Tuesday of him training indoors at his academy in Mallorca and the accompanying message stated that he will play at the final Masters tournament of the season.

Nadal wrote: “It’s indoor season time… this picture was earlier today practicing at the @rnadalacademy… And yes… getting ready for #ParisBercy.”

Nadal’s appearance in Paris also makes it much more likely that he will take his place at the ATP Finals, which is being hosted in London for the final time.

It is the biggest title the 34-year-old Nadal has never won and, by playing indoors, he will put immense pressure on Novak Djokovic at the top of the rankings.

Nadal, along with Djokovic and Roger Federer forms the greatest trio of tennis maestros of the Open era.
