Rafa Nadal will not participate in the 2016 edition of Wimbledon due to left wrist injury. The injury forced the Spaniard to withdraw midway through the French Open.
Nadal announced his decision with a post on his official Facebook account.
“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.”
