Rafael Nadal has pulled out of the Brisbane International with a left thigh injury but hopes to be fit for the Australian Open later this month.
“I tried to play, I wanted to play, but recommendations from the doctors [were otherwise],” the world number two said.
The Spaniard, 32, missed November’s season-ending ATP Finals in London to have surgery on an ankle injury, which followed an abdominal muscle problem.
Taro Daniel will replace Nadal in round two against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
