Miami Open 2022 Pulledouts


The highly anticipated 2022 Miami Open kicks off on Monday, March 21. After the first qualifying round, the main event will begin on Wednesday, March 23. However, many top tennis players have to withdraw from the competition for various reasons, such as Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Ashleigh Barty, and Roger Federer. Here you will know who will not play in the Miami Open 2022.

Rafael Nadal

Rafael Nadal has had a good year without facing defeat this year; withdraw this year from Miami Open. Nadal started the year by winning the Melbourne Summer Set and won the Australian Open, the first Grand Slam event of the year. He won the Mexican Open title at Acapulco and will win the fourth title when he reaches the Indian Wells Masters final. The Spaniards haven't participated in the Miami Open since 2017 and have decided to skip this year as well.

Ashleigh Barty

World number one Ashleigh Barty, who won the Adelaide International and Australian Open earlier this year, has suffered a physical setback and plans to return to action by April this year. Barty's last match was the Australian Open final, where she defeated American Danielle Collins to become the first Australian to win the Australian Open in 48 years. Barty also missed the Indian Wells Masters and hopes to be back in time for the Billy Jean King Cup qualifiers on April 15.

Novak Djokovic

World No. 1 Novak Djokovic, who was expelled from Australia for not being vaccinated, will also be unable to play at the Miami Open because he has not yet been vaccinated. Djokovic, who is reluctant to get vaccinated, has only played in the Dubai Tennis Championships this year, where he was eliminated in the quarterfinals. If Djokovic hadn't been vaccinated, he could have missed more games.

Roger Federer

Roger Federer is 40 years old, who has been sidelined since Wimbledon 2021, is still recovering from knee surgery that has kept him out for the past eight months. The 20-time Grand Slam champion suffered a knee problem and underwent a third operation in two years after completing Wimbledon. He may be suspended until Wimbledon this year.
