Rafa Nadal has pulled out of his Laver Cup matches on Sunday due to inflammation in his hand, denying fans the opportunity to see him partner Roger Federer in the doubles on the final day of the tournament in Geneva.

Team Europe’s Nadal was scheduled to take on Team World’s Nick Kyrgios in his singles clash before partnering Swiss Federer to face John Isner and Jack Sock.

“I’ve had an amazing time playing at the Laver Cup and I’m so disappointed I’m not able to play again today, but I have some inflammation in my hand and I need to rest,” Nadal said in a statement.

“The atmosphere has been amazing in Geneva and of course I’m going to be there courtside today for all my team mates and do everything I can to support them and help Team Europe win the Laver Cup.”

Nadal added in a tweet: “Sad I won’t be able to play today. I have an inflammation on my left wrist. I will be supporting #teameurope from the bench! #vamos @LaverCup.

“What a week it’s been!”

Nadal will be replaced in the doubles by Stefanos Tsitsipas while Dominic Thiem will take his place in the singles to face Kyrgios.

U.S. Open champion Nadal beat Milos Raonic 6-3 7-6(1) in his singles match on Saturday before partnering Tsitsipas in a 6-4 3-6 10-6 defeat by Kyrgios and Sock.

Nadal said after that victory: “After New York, the body always feels down a little bit.

“Some issues can happen but here I am. I’m trying hard to be ready for when the team need me.

“Let’s see. All of the matches are very difficult.

“If I am not at 100 per cent, there is another player. But I am confident I can help.”

Team Europe lead their opponents 7-5 with the first side to reach 13 points crowned champions. Each win is worth three points on Sunday.

In other singles matches, Federer squares off against Isner while Alexander Zverev meets Raonic.
