Nadal to miss Queen's


Rafael Nadal faces a race to be fit for Wimbledon after being forced to withdraw from this year's Aegon Championships at Queen's Club due to injury.

A wrist injury prompted the Spaniard to pull out of the French Open last week and the problem will prevent him from playing in the grasscourt event. However, he is optimistic he will be fit in time for Wimbledon, which starts on June 27.

"I am very sad that my wrist injury means that I cannot play at The Queen's Club this year," he said.

"It is a tournament and a club that I love. I enjoy playing in front of the British people and I was looking forward to trying to win the title for a second time."

"We're going to work hard to be ready for Wimbledon.

"I need a couple of weeks (with the wrist) immobilised. Then we're going to do the treatment and we hope that works well.

"We expect to recover quick and to be ready for Wimbledon."
