Nadal with­draws to rest for Wim­ble­don

Ottawa Citizen - - SPORTS -

French Open cham­pion Rafael Nadal has with­drawn from next week’s Queen’s Club tour­na­ment in an at­tempt to be ready for Wim­ble­don. The No. 1-ranked Nadal won his 11th ti­tle at Roland Gar­ros on Sun­day. But af­ter play­ing 27 matches on clay the past two months, the 32-year-old Spa­niard feels he needs time to re­cover. “It has been a very long clay court sea­son for me with great re­sults. I have spo­ken to my doc­tors and I need to lis­ten to what my body is telling me,” Nadal said. Queen’s is one of the main warm-up tour­na­ments for Wim­ble­don, which be­gins on July 2 in London.
