Nadal Pulls out of ATP Cup Tie vs. Australia at Last Second

World No 2 Rafael Nadal has pulled out of the ATP Cup 2021 tie against Australia following a back issue.

Nadal tweet: "Hi all, we have decided with #TeamSpain and my team, to not play today the first match of the @ATPCup here in #Melbourne since I have a stiff low back".

"The exclamation point on the best point I've seen in the ATP Cup so far".

Spanish number two Roberto Bautista Agut will now face de Minaur, while John Millman takes on Pablo Carreno Busta in the opening rubber.

This means that Spain, last year's finalist, will have to go through Greece and Australia if they want another shot at the ATP Cup trophy.

At the end of his isolation, he defeated Dominic Thiem 7-5 6-4 on Friday in a highly entertaining exhibition match between the men's world Nos.

12 teams are participating in the second edition of the ATP Cup in Melbourne, Australia.

The win levelled the tie at 1-1 after Canada's Milos Raonic had eased past Dusan Lajovic 6-3 6-4.

Thiem's Australian Open preparations got off to a slow start as the US Open champion slumped to a 6-2 6-4 defeat by Italy's Matteo Berrettini in his opening match. "I hope all of you who came here enjoyed it because I certainly did", the world No. 1 told a small crowd at the stadium, soaking up boisterous cheers from Serbian fans. The Spaniard has withdrawn from the clash citing a "stiff lower back".

Having pushed Djokovic to five sets in the Australian Open final previous year, Thiem is among the top contenders looking to dethrone the Serb at the February 8-21 Grand Slam.

"Playing for your country is something special".

It will be Federer's first match since he was knocked out of the quarter-final stage of last year's Australian Open.
