Nadal withdraws from Wimbledon tuneup for extra rest

Nadal, who won his 10th French Open title last Sunday, will not feature at the Queen's Club tournament, which starts Monday.

This makes him the first Tennis player in this era to win 10 Grand Slam tournaments.

In a Facebook post on his official page, the 15-time Slam champion wrote: "I am very sorry to say that I am not going to be able to play Queen's next week". It's true that after 2012 what happened with my knees, it has been tougher and tougher to compete on grass. Nadal was unable to convert four break points in the fourth game.

His world ranking slipped as low as 10 in 2015 and his 2016 French Open was ended prematurely after the second round by a wrist injury.

Wimbledon begins on July 3.

Australia says to resume air strikes in Syria after Russian Federation threat
That took place near the Syrian city of Taqba, which has been the focus of fighting as US -sponsored ground forces advance Raqqa. The action was a "flagrant aggression" that confirmed the US' "real stance in support of terrorism", Syria's military said.

"I love grass. Everybody knows that".

"If you're not completely free. you don't want him to take the lead and play even more freely", said Wawrinka, who became US Open champion past year. "I was hoping he was going to dominate the claycourt season like the olden days".

"The nerves, the adrenaline that I feel when I play in this court is impossible to compare".

Federer pulled out of the French Open to concentrate on the Grass Court season and an interesting matchup is expected between those two in London.

If it is at a 100 per cent, he will most probably reach the final and even take a third Wimbledon title. During those three years, I had doubts.

"Life is never clear". "Winning these kind of titles, then you have chances to become any number (in) the ranking". "I am not an arrogant person".

Since his debut in 2005, he has lost only two matches on the Parisian red clay and he bagged his 79th victory on Sunday by dismantling Swiss Stan Wawrinka 6-2 6-3 6-1 in a one-sided final. So it's quite surprising that he hasn't pushed on since winning the French Open previous year.

The world No. 2, who has lifted the titles in Monte-Carlo, Barcelona, Madrid and at the just-conluded Frenfh Open, has won all but one match on clay in 2017.

The king of clay, created history in Paris as he didn't drop a single set during the course of the title and conceded only 35 games.

This time it has been hard for me, but my relationship with this tournament is special.

Nadal triumphed in Paris without dropping a set for a third time.
