Paris:

French Open champion Rafael Nadal has pulled out of the next week's ATP Paris Masters citing personal reasons, the French Tennis Federation (FFT) said Friday.

The Spanish world number three is already guaranteed a place in the season-ending World Tour Finals in London next month.

The Paris tournament, often beset by withdrawals due to its position in the calendar at the end of the season, has also seen US Open champion Marin Cilic pull out with an arm injury and No.13 Ernests Gulbis withdraw due to a shoulder problem.

Nadal has been replaced in the draw by compatriot Pablo Andujar while Pole Jerzy Janowicz, finalist in 2012, and Canadian Vasek Pospisil take the places of Cilic and Gulbis.
