Rafael Nadal’s presence in next week’s ATP Finals is still up in the air as he seeks greater clarity on the extent of the injury he sustained at the Paris Masters on Saturday.

The Spaniard today  returned to the top of the ATP Rankings for an eighth stint at the pinnacle of men’s professional tennis,

“I went through this in the past, so that’s why the recommendation of the doctors (was) to not play,” Nadal told reporters in the French capital. “I have to take that decision.”

Two days after his withdrawal, Nadal is set to undergo a further MRI after the previous test didn’t show a clear enough picture of the issue. His team has confirmed to Mundo Deportivo that the assessment will take place in Palma de Mallorca.
