The 10-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal will play his tournament at the 2011 BNP Paribas Open tournament, which will begin from 7th November at Paris in France.
The World No. 2 Rafael Nadal has been smashed out of the 2011 Shanghai Rolex Masters tournament on Thursday, where he lost to German top seed Florian Mayer in straight sets with a 7-6 and 6-3. Spaniard has won just three titles so far in this season, including a single Grand Slam title in French Open at Roland Garros.
Nadal said he will work hard on his all weapons, where he hopes to clinch the BNP Paribas Masters, before heading into the ATP World Tour Finals in November. The World No. 6th ranked Robin Soderling of Sweden have won the 2010 Pairs Masters, as he overcome against Frenchman Gael Monfils in the final in two sets with a 6–1 and 7–6(7–1). Nadal has never won the title here at the BNP Paribas Masters, an ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event.
Spaniard has reached the final of the BNP Paribas Masters in 2007, where he fell to David Nalbandian of Argentina in straight sets with a 6–4 and 6–0. Nadal also lost seven championship finals this season including two major tournaments, six to World No. 1 Novak Djokovic and a final to Andy Murray.
