The Spaniard looked in discomfort during the match and only had a brief practice session on Saturday.

“It’s tough for me to accept all these things that I’m going through in my career,” Nadal said.

Swiss Federer received a walkover to Sunday’s final, where he will play either Austria’s Dominic Thiem or Milos Raonic of Canada.

“My goal is to be healthy as many weeks as possible to keep playing and at the highest level possible,” Nadal said.
