Nov.03 - SportLand: World number one Rafael Nadal has withdrawn from the Paris Masters with a knee injury. The Spaniard was due to face Serb Filip Krajinovic in the quarter-finals on Friday, but said he was suffering from a right knee problem and pulled out before the match.

According to BBC, the 31-year-old had the knee strapped during his third-round win over Pablo Cuevas on Thursday.   

"I am sad to pull out from here," he said. Nadal said he was aiming to return for the season-ending ATP Tour Finals, which take place in London from 12-19 November.

"I am going to do my treatment and my best to be playing in London," he added.

Rafael Nadal suffered an injury scare but still moved into the quarter-finals of the Paris Masters after beating Pablo Cuevas 6-3 6-7 (5-7) 6-3, on what was an eventful day in the French capital. The world No. 1 is chasing a first title at Paris-Bercy and can move beyond Novak Djokovic to be crowned as the outright most successful player in Masters 1000 events, with just three more wins.
