BARCELONA---Rafael Nadal s doctor
says the 14-time Grand Slam winner
will receive stem cell treatment on his
Angel Ruiz-Cotorro said yesterday
that "we are going to put cells in a joint
in his spine" next week in Barcelona.
The Spanish tennis star was already
sidelined for the rest of the season after
having his appendix removed last week.
Ruiz-Cotorro, who has worked as a
doctor for Nadal for the past 14 years,
said Nadal s back pain is "typical of
tennis" players and that the treatment
is meant to help repair his cartilage
and is similar to stem cell treatment
Nadal received on his knee last year.
He said Nadal is expected to return
to training in early December.
Several NFL players and baseball
players have received stem cell treat-
ment. Nadal s fellow Spaniard Pau
Gasol, center of the Chicago Bulls,
received stem cell treatment on his
knee in 2013.
Nadal experienced severe back pain
during the final of the Australian Open
in January when he lost to Stanislas
"(Nadal) has a problem typical in
tennis with a back joint, he had it at
the Australian Open, and we have
decided to treat it with stem cells,"
He said that stem cells were recently
extracted from Nadal for a cultivation
process to "produce the necessary
"When we have them we will put
them in the point of pain," he said,
with the goal of "regenerating cartilage,

Nadal, now 28, won a record ninth
French Open along with three other
titles this season before a stunning loss
to teenager Borna Coric at the Swiss
Indoors in October dropped him to No
3 in the ATP rankings. That tournament
was only his third since Wimbledon
due to a wrist injury.
The Mallorca island native has strug-
gled with injuries over recent years.
A knee injury caused him to miss
several months in 2012 before coming
back to full strength to win 10 titles in
2013, including the US Open and again
dominating at Roland Garros.
Nadal s 14 Grand Slam titles ties him
with Pete Sampras on the all-time list
led by Roger Federer and his 17 victories.

Serbia's Novak Djokovic
plays a return to Croatia's
Marin Cilic during their

tennis finals match at the

LONDON---Two-time defending cham-
pion Novak Djokovic extended his
indoor winning streak with an impres-
sive 6-1, 6-1 win over Marin Cilic yes-
terday in his opening round-robin
match at the ATP World Tour Finals,
after Stan Wawrinka put his recent
struggles behind him with an equally
Djokovic moved two wins away from
sealing the year-end No 1 spot, and
improved his record against the US Open
champion to 11-0 with a dominant display
that lasted only 56 minutes.
The O2 Arena crowd was treated to
several stunning rallies in the opening
stages, with Djokovic coming out on top
on every important point. The top-ranked
Serb has now won his last 28 matches
indoors, a streak going back more than
He will next take on Wawrinka, who
made the most of Tomas Berdych s
error-laced performance in a 6-1, 6-1
Djokovic read Cilic s serve well and
broke at love for a 4-1 lead after hitting
two sumptuous forehand passing shots,
then clinched the set after Cilic buried
a backhand in the net.
After dropping his serve immediately
at the start of the second set, Cilic broke
back to stay in the match but his resur-
gence was short-lived as Djokovic won
the next four games.
Djokovic, who is bidding to finish the
season as No 1 for the third time, will
be guaranteed the top spot if he wins
his remaining two round-robin matches
against Wawrinka and Berdych.
"Marin, as a US Open winner, has a
lot of confidence, but I managed to neu-
tralise his serve and get a lot of ball back
in play and that was part of the tactic,"
Wawrinka was almost as impressive
against Berdych, outclassing his Czech
opponent with a range of backhand and
volley winners. He was also aided by
Berdych s abject display, as the sixth-
seeded heavy hitter lost his opening
match at the season-ending tournament
for the fifth time in as many attempts.
"Unfortunately, it was my worst
match of the whole season, and I kept
it for the start here in the World Tour
Finals," Berdych said. "I did not feel
anything good today."
Wawrinka traveled to London with
his form in question after winning only
two matches since his quarterfinal exit
at the US Open, and struggling to play
as freely as he did earlier this season.
"My recent losses really hurt me,"
said the Australian Open champion,
who also won his first Masters title at
Monte Carlo this year. "But I kept work-
ing hard at training and I never panicked.
I knew my game was there. It was more
the mental side that I needed to
Wawrinka immediately put Berdych
on the back foot, winning five consec-
utive games to take the first set after
dropping only three points on his service
Berdych, who had 20 unforced errors,
fought harder at the start of the second
set but dropped his serve after a tight
third game and never recovered.
"When I feel good on the court, I m
ready to beat anybody" said Wawrinka,
who had never lost just two games
against a Top-10 opponent in 34 wins.
"But I did not expect to win so easi-
ly."After the round-robin stage, the top
two finishers in each group will advance
and Berdych has few illusions about his
chances of progressing.
"I m in the worst possible situation
that I can ever be," he said. "I m going
to face Marin or Novak first, in the end
playing both of them, and the only
chance to qualify is to beat them, it s
almost mission impossible."
Wawrinka s strong display will also
reassure the Swiss team ahead of the
Davis Cup final against France from
November 21-23 in Lille, where he will
be teaming up with Roger Federer. (AP)
