Rafael Nadal: Late change made to Spanish star’s Wimbledon preparations

28 Juin, 2018, 13:19 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

Nadal will play two matches at the Hurlingham Club this week which will be his only warm-up games before the Wimbledon.

The World No 1 had been due to face Australian Open semi-finalist Hyeon Chung before the South Korean's withdrawal and will next meet France's Lucas Pouille on Friday.

The Swiss player suffered a surprise defeat to Borna Coric in the Gerry Weber Open final in Halle last weekend, while Nadal is yet to feature on grass since winning an 11th French Open title earlier this month.

The Spaniard will be hoping to avoid a number of booby traps hidden within the draw for The Championships, which begin next week, with the likes of Stan Wawrinka and Andy Murray to enter the tournament unseeded.

But instead made themselves look like what they are, not stand up guys. "I'm so happy it's over now I've done my part". He said Joshua and Hearn had "led boxing fans on for three months", adding they "never wanted this fight".

"It's always great to play in front of United Kingdom fans so I can't wait to return", said Nadal.

Defending champion Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal headline the Wimbledon seedings while British No 1 Kyle Edmund is seeded 22nd.

Federer won an eighth title at the All England Club past year and will be the top seed despite losing his world No 1 ranking to Nadal on Monday.
