Rafael Nadal pares back schedule amid wedding rumors

The 33-year-old Spaniard won his 19th Grand Slam at the US Open on Sunday.

Rafael Nadal has not fully decided his schedule for the rest of the season, saying it will depend at least partly on his physical condition. 

The 33-year-old is also rumored to be having his wedding to long-time girlfriend Maria Francisca Perello in five weeks.

Speaking to press in Mallorca following his win at the US Open, Nadal indicated he will play just a few events.

"I haven't got to speak to my team yet but I hope to have a conversation soon. Anyway, to decide my schedule I have to see the way my body reacts," he said. "Immediately, what's planned is the Laver Cup."

Nadal, who has played a limited schedule in recent years and experienced frequent injury problems, appeared unsure about the rest of the season.

"The next thing, I don't know," he said. "We will fix the priorities for the rest of the year and also looking at the next one. The Masters [ATP Tour Finals] obviously, and Asia is to be decided. The Masters and Paris [Masters] is what I have fixed."

The Spaniard is also scheduled to play the Davis Cup in Madrid following the ATP Tour Finals.

Nadal is No. 2 in the rankings.
