MIAMI, Fla. (www.sonyericssonopen.com) – Rafael Nadal has been forced to withdraw from the Sony Ericsson Open due to a knee injury and will be unable to play in today’s semifinal match versus Andy Murray.
Nadal, ranked No. 2 in the world and the tournament’s No. 2 seed, was looking to win his first Sony Ericsson Open title.
“We are disappointed that Rafa has been forced to withdraw from the tournament but the health of the players always needs to be the number one priority,” said Adam Barrett, Sony Ericsson Open Tournament Director. “He has played some great tennis and is a tremendous ambassador for the game. We wish him a speedy recovery and hope to see him back on the court soon.”
With the withdrawal Murray advances to the Sony Ericsson Open final for the second time. Murray won the Sony Ericsson Open singles title in 2009.
