Rafael Nadal withdraws from 2022 Laver Cup citing personal reasons

Rafael Nadal has withdrawn from the 2022 Laver Cup due to personal reasons. The Spaniard played only one game of the competition, which was the final match of Roger Federer’s career. 

The 22-time Grand Slam champion is expecting a child with his wife Mery, which has been one of the main reasons for his stress.

“I’m not okay, I’m not okay. The truth is that they have been difficult weeks in that sense,” Rafael Nadal told Spanish media outlet AS.

“Little, very little, few hours of sleep, a little stress in general, situations a little more complicated than usual at home. Which, well, I’ve had to deal with all of that, which is a different pressure than what you’re used to in professional life,” he added.

“But well, luckily everything is fine, and we are much calmer. And in that sense, well, I was able to come here, which for me was the most important thing,” he said. 

The tennis icon hinted at some of the issues during the US Open, and only played the Laver Cup doubles game on Federer’s special request. The duo lost the game against Jack Sock and Frances Tiafoe 9-11 in the tiebreaker after a tense game.
