French Open champ Nadal withdraws from Queen’s Club
LONDON - French Open champion Rafael Nadal has withdrawn from next week’s Queen’s Club tournament in an attempt to be ready for Wimbledon.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.
Queen’s is one of the main warm-up tournaments for Wimbledon, which begins on July 2.
