For the first time in 17 years, Rafael Nadal did not qualify for the ATP Finals

For the first time in 17 years, Rafael Nadal (5th in the ATP ranking) did not qualify for the ATP Finals, the tournament that every year brings together the eight best tennis players of the season.

Although he did not participate in all the editions in which he had the opportunity, it was a classic to see his name on the list, although this time he was the exception.

The Spanish season was a swing: started as No. 2 in the world and, after having lifted the titles in the ATP 500 in Barcelona and in the Masters 1000 in Rome, he went into a tailspin.

The last performance was in the ATP 500 in Washington and from there he could not return to the fields. Anyway, her participation in Mubadala was recently confirmed in December, the exhibition that she has already won five times.

Notably Nadal was only 10 times in the ATP Finals, since for various reasons he could not be present every time he qualified. Regarding presences, Roger Federer is the one who leads the list, with 17, accompanied by Novak Djokovic (1st), who with this year added 14 and positioned himself as the second.

The Spaniard was a finalist in 2010 (he lost to Federer 6-3, 3-6 and 6-1) and in 2013 (he lost to Djokovic 6-3 and 6-4). A) Yes, you must wait at least one more year in order to lift one of the few trophies he never managed to win.
