Nadal Skips Wimbledon, Focuses On Paris Olympic Games

Rafael Nadal has confirmed that he won’t be taking part in Wimbledon in a bid to focus on the Paris Olympic Games.

The injury-plagued Spaniard, who has slumped to 264 in the world rankings, said after his exit to eventual runner-up Alexander Zverev in Paris that switching surfaces would not be “smart”

On Thursday he confirmed on social media that he would not be travelling to London to take part in the third Grand Slam of the year.

“It looks difficult to make a transition to grass, having the Olympics again on clay,” he said at the time.

“During my post-match press conference at Roland Garros I was asked about my summer calendar and since then I have been practising on clay,” he tweeted.

“It was announced yesterday that I will play at the summer Olympics in Paris, my last Olympics.”

“With this goal, we believe that the best for my body is not to change surface and keep playing on clay until then.

“It’s for this reason that I will miss playing at the Championships this year at Wimbledon. I am saddened not to be able to live this year the great atmosphere of that amazing event that will always be in my heart, and be with all the British fans that always gave me great support. I will miss you all.”
