Rafael Nadal’s chances of playing Wimbledon are on the decline after the former No. 1 withdrew from the Queen’s Club tune-up, the tournament announced today.
“I am very sad that my wrist injury means that I cannot play at The Queen’s Club this year,” Nadal said. “It is a tournament and a club that I love, I enjoy playing in front of the British people, and I was looking forward to trying to win the title for a second time. I wish everyone at the tournament a great week, and I look forward to returning in future years.”
Queen’s Club begins 12 days from now on June 13.
Nadal made a shock withdrawal from the French Open on Friday revealing a significant wrist injury.
With Wimbledon less than four weeks away on June 27 and his poor record there recently, it’s a longshot Nadal will be ready to compete.
