Nadal Unsure About Next Tournament Wednesday, Oct. 12

Per Colin Millar of Marca.com, Nadal said the season is "practically over now" and the solution for him is "not to keep competing but to rest and also to prepare" for next season.  

Nadal went on to say he's not sure of what to do over the next month, because it's unclear what he will need to do to make himself fully healthy for next season. 

While Nadal didn't specifically discuss his wrist, the Spanish star has battled problems with that part of his body most of the year. He was forced to withdraw from the French Open before a third-round match against Marcel Granollers.

That injury also prevented Nadal from playing in Wimbledon and kept him on the shelf until the 2016 Rio Olympics in August. His left wrist was still causing him problems in Rio de Janeiro, but he was still able to reach the semifinals. 

Nadal's physical decline has led to him dropping to fifth in the current ATP rankings. Given the problems he's had staying on the court, taking additional time off at the end of the year to prepare for 2017 could be the best thing for his career.
