BANGKOK, Sept 23 (Reuters) World number two Rafael Nadal of Spain has pulled out of this week's Thailand Open because of a knee injury, organisers said today. The three-times grand slam winner is at home in Mallorca receiving treated for tendonitis in his left knee, which plagued him during the recent US Open, where he reached the fourth round.

This year's seeds for the 550,000 dollars Thailand Open include Andy Roddick, Tommy Haas, Novak Djokovic, Dmitry Tursunov, Carlos Moya and Ivo Karlovic. The main draw gets underway on Tuesday.
