MADRID: Rafael Nadal will miss Wimbledon after failing to recover from the wrist injury which also forced his early withdrawal from the French Open, the Spanish star announced on his Facebook page.
“Hi everybody. I’m sad to announce that after talking to my doctors, and receiving the results of my last medical revision, I won’t be able to play at Wimbledon this year,” wrote the 30-year-old.
“As you can all imagine, it’s a very tough decision, but the injury I suffered at Roland Garros needs time to heal.”
The 14-time Grand Slam title winner won Wimbledon in 2008 and 2010.
