Nadal announces he won't play at Wimbledon

12:17 p.m. EDT June 9, 2016

After pulling out of the French Open before his third-round match, Rafael Nadal is not going to Wimbledon.

He announced on social media that he came to the decision after talking to his doctors.

“It’s a very tough decision but the injury I suffered at Roland Garros needs time to heal,” his Facebook page said.

Nadal, 30, cited a left wrist injury when withdrawing from the French Open on May 27. He was near tears when he spoke at a news conference.

“It’s not broken, but if I keep playing (here) it’s going to be broken,” Nadal said at Roland Garros. “To win the tournament I need five more matches… that is nearly 100 percent impossible.”
