Nadal suffers another health setback with stomach bug

AFTER seven months on the sidelines recovering from a knee injury, world No.4 Rafael Nadal will have to wait another week to return to the court after picking up a stomach virus.

The Spaniard was due to return in the Mubadala World Tennis Championship which starts in in Abu Dhabi today, but has been advised by doctors not to travel or compete.

Nadal has played in the invitation-only event for the past four years.

Organisers were yesterday searching for a replacement to join defending champion Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, David Ferrer, Tomas Berdych and Janko Tipsarevic.
