Shanghai: Rafael Nadal on Thursday, warned that London was in danger of losing the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals because of punitive British tax rules for sports stars.
London won the right to host the year-ending showpiece from 2009 to 2013 but the Spanish world number two suggested that while players enjoyed playing in the British capital, tax was an issue.
When asked whether the top players would be against another deal for London because of the tax situation, Nadal said: "What I believe in my heart, there is a fantastic event, a full crowd every match. Fantastic stadium. But London is not the only city in the world.
"It is true, it's really tough what's happening today in the UK with the tax. There are a lot of things really positive but this thing is probably really negative.
