It also left Paris ticketholders feeling frustrated after Roger Federer's later match with Milos Raonic was called off after Canadian Raonic also pulled out injured.

The Swiss world number three will play the victor of the tie between France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Croatia's Milos Raonic on Wednesday after receiving a bye in the first round. Raonic hammered an impressive 23 aces in just his third victory since the US Open.

World number 57 Herbert was beaten by Kazakhstan's Mikail Kukushkin in three sets (3-6, 6-3, 7-5) while Jeremy Chardy, ranked 40th, lost 6-4, 6-4 to Spain's Fernando Verdasco.

The Spaniard has not revealed whether he will play in next week's ATP Tour Finals in London.

At the U.S. Open in early September, he dropped the opening two sets against Juan Martin del Potro before retiring. He then skipped the Asia swing to recover, missing tournaments in Beijing and Shanghai. I checked with the doctor and the doctor recommended I did not play'.

Djokovic issued a similar message, saying: "Of course I'm aware of what's happening and it's sad".

"It has been a tough year for me in terms of injuries so I want to avoid drastic things", Nadal said.

The Swiss star missed the event the past two years due to a combination of injury and selective scheduling.

Nadal is optimistic his latest injury will pass, providing he does not rush back.

Nadal, who was won 17 major titles to Djokovic's 14, added that the match had been agreed over a year ago, a long time before the recent controversy surrounding the regime emerged.

South African seventh seed Kevin Anderson, the champion in Vienna at the weekend, battled past Nikoloz Basilashvili of Georgia 6-3, 6-7 (3/7), 7-6 (7/3).

Lucky loser Malek Jaziri replaced Nadal and beat Verdasco 7-6 (5), 1-6, 6-3 and next faces defending champion Jack Sock.

World number eight Dominic Thiem boosted his chances of qualifying for the ATP Finals, beating Gilles Simon 6-4, 6-2 and next faces Borna Coric for a quarter-final slot.
