Athletistic / Tennis. 22-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal of Spain lost his chance to keep fighting in the ATP Finals. He will not be able to reach the tournament playoffs.

This happened after the Norwegian Kasper Ruud with a score of 6:3 took a set from the American Taylor Fritz in the Group match of the Greens. If Ruud had lost the match without taking a set, Nadal would have had a theoretical chance of qualifying for the playoffs despite two losses.
