Nadal a Wimbledon worry

Men's Tennis, Last updated:


Rafael Nadal was today expected to announce whether he has recovered from a knee injury to defend his Wimbledon title.

The Spain superstar, who crashed out of the French Open in the fourth round after defeat by Robin Soderling, has been undergoing tests in Barcelona on the problem which forced him to miss this week's AEGON Championships at Queen's Club.
"Rafa is in Barcelona undergoing medical tests on his knees," said a statement on his official website.
"We will inform through this website the results and his participation at Wimbledon."
Speaking last week about his withdrawal from Queen's, the 22-year-old, who beat Roger Federer in last year's final, said: "I have been having some problems in the past months with my knees that did not allow me to compete always at 100%.
"I need to work with my team to recover well, work on my physical condition to be at my top form and get ready for the grass to play at Wimbledon. I hope I can be ready to compete by then.
"I am really sorry and I hope that the people at the tournament will still want me to come next year."
