Rafael Nadal to miss Wimbledon because of wrist injury
LONDON (AP) Rafael Nadal has pulled out of Wimbledon, citing the left wrist injury that forced him out of the French Open.
The two-time Wimbledon champion says on his Facebook page that he made the decision after consulting with his doctor.
The Spaniard says “it is a sad decision but the injury on my wrist at Roland Garros needs time to heal.”
Wimbledon starts on June 27.
Nadal had already pulled out of next week’s Wimbledon grass-court warmup at Queen’s Club.
He pulled out of the French Open before his third-round match.
