Wimbledon Will Have One Less Champion In The Tournament This Year

Looks like two time Wimbledon Champion Rafael Nadal will be out of this years tournament due to a wrist injury from the 2016 French open just last week. Earlier today on Facebook he posted

“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.”

Looks like Rafa will have some extra time to enjoy some Strawberries and Cream this year. Hopefully he has a speedy recovery and can get back onto the courts soon!
