Rafael Nadal will not make any decision on his schedule for the rest of the year until he has played in the Swiss Indoors Basle next week.

The world number three has been battling a bout of appendicitis recently but has preferred to treat the condition with antibiotics instead of surgery to remove his appendix.

There were reports in the Spanish media on Wednesday that Nadal was to undergo the operation which would force him to miss the Paris Masters and ATP World Tour Finals in London.

But his team have rubbished those rumours stating that any decision will not be made until he has taken part in his next competition, which gets under way on Monday.

His press agent said in a short statement: ” Rafa Nadal will play Basle this upcoming week and depending on how he feels and the advice from his doctors will decide after the tournament on his schedule.”

Nadal made his return from a wrist injury late last month but could only reach the quarter-finals of the China Open in Beijing before he was knocked out of the Shanghai Masters at the second round stage.
