LONDON, June 9, 2016
It wasn’t a surprise but a shame for sure, that Rafael Nadal had to announce on Thursday afternoon his withdrawal from Wimbledon. His left wrist, which forced him to pull out of Roland Garros, will continue with the immobilised for the maximum of two weeks. After that, the Spaniard will start an anti inflammatory rehabilitation and physiotherapy based treatment once the cast is removed.
Nadal wrote on his facebook page:
“Hi everybody. I’m sad to announce that after talking to my doctors, and receiving the results of my last medical revision, I won’t be able to play at Wimbledon this year.
As you can all imagine, it’s a very tough decision, but the injury I suffered at Roland Garros needs time to heal. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to join in the pre-tournament event #TheBoodles at #Stokepark that I attended in previous years.
Thank you all for your support, especially my fans. Your kind messages mean so much to me.”
