Rafael Nadal To Miss Aegon Championship

French Open champion Rafael Nadal has pulled out of the Aegon Championships at Queen’s Club after being advised to rest by his doctor.

Nadal, who won a 10th Roland Garros title on Sunday, said he had a long clay court season and needed to rest ahead of Wimbledon.

 “I am very sorry to say that I am not going to be able play Queen’s next week,” said Nadal.

“I am sad to make this decision because I love Queen’s, I won the tournament in 2008.

“I was hoping to take some days off and then be ready but, at 31, and after a long clay court season with all of the emotions of Roland Garros, and after speaking to my team and doctor, I have decided my body needs to rest if I am going to be ready to play Wimbledon.”

The Aegon Championships start on 19 June, and Wimbledon on 3 July.
