SHANGHAI: Tennis player Rafael Nadal alleged that he may take halt for this season for some time and starts practicing for the next season.
Nadal got worried after he defeated his opponent player Viktor Troicki by 6-3, 7-6 (7/3) in the first match at Shanghai Masters.

In April, he secured second title of the year in Barcelona as Spanish Left hander beaten him by good score.
"I don't know what's going to happen in the next couple of weeks. It's something that I need to think about", Nadal said.
"I cannot say now what I'm going to do during the next month. I'm not sure about my calendar. I'm not sure about the things that I need to do to try to be 100 percent ready for next year." He added.
In London, he played the matches in events including Swiss Indoors, the Paris Masters and the ATP World Tour Finals but he feels that more tournaments may not be what he needs.
"Sometimes keeping (on) competing is not the solution. Sometimes the solution is to practise and stop and have a process of training. And maybe that's an opportunity to do it," he said.
"I'm not sure about that. Maybe I'm going to play in Basel in two weeks. So it's not the day and not the moment to analyse all these kind of things."
Nadal's first since defeat to Troicki, positioned 31st, came not exactly a week after his demoralizing straight-sets misfortune to Grigor Dimitrov in the China Open quarter-finals.
Signs are developing of an unfaltering decrease for the one-time dirt court ruler, who won his first Slam title matured 17 yet hasn't added to his count of majors since the 2014 French Open.
Nadal said he severely expected to deal with his once-impressive forehand, and the speed of development which made him a block divider for such a large number of rivals.
"Each time that I hit the forehand, I have to make torment for the adversary, something that is not happening today," he said.
"Possibly in light of the fact that I had a harm on the wrist and I am frightened. Possibly in light of the fact that despite everything I have some impediment in there. However, toward the day's end, no one thinks about that and I couldn't care less about that."
He said he expected to recuperate "the power in the legs" and "move speedier to hit more forehands".
"However, I should be more sure with the forehand to get that going. Everything is a cycle. I have to do the things together."
