Rafael Nadal won't be Shanghai bound before his walk down the aisle.

The US Open champion has withdrawn from the Rolex Shanghai Masters due to a left wrist injury.

"I am very sad to announce that I won’t be able to play in Shanghai this yea," Nadal said in a statement. "It is the second year in a row and in China I have great fans.

"The tournament is amazing and the city one of the most special places around the world. But, as you all probably know, I had an inflammation on my left wrist during the Laver Cup and I haven’t had the time to recover and practice to be ready for this amazing event. I hope to be back in Shanghai for the 2020 tournament."

In addition to his wrist issues, Nadal has a major milestone approaching.

The 19-time Grand Slam champion is scheduled to wed long-time fiancée Xisca Perelló in the couple's native Mallorca on October 19th.
