French Open champion Rafa Nadal has been forced to withdraw from January's Australian Open due to a stomach virus that has disrupted his recovery from a knee injury, the world No.4 said on Friday.


"My knee is much better and the rehabilitation process has gone well as predicted by the doctors, but this virus didn't allow me to practise this past week," the Spaniard said in a statement.

"Therefore I am sorry to announce that I will not play in Doha and the Australian Open as initially scheduled."
