Rafael Nadal out of Queen's Club, in doubt for Wimbledon

Too bad, Nadal will not defend that huge Aegon Championships trophy this year.

Spanish sports newspaper 'Marca reported that Rafael Nadal could miss Wimbledon because of a knee injury.

Toni Nadal, the reigning Wimbledon champion's uncle and coach, said the 23-year-old had a damaged right knee and was doubtful for the Grand Slam which starts on June 22.
"We have taken him out of the Queen's tournament (June 8-14) and will do everything possible to get him there, but this is subject to medical tests," Toni Nadal said.

"There is something wrong with his knee but right now we are uncertain what the problem is," he added.
The latest injury scare is said not connected with the persistent tendonitis suffered by the player.

Nadal is currently resting at his home town of Manacor on the island of Mallorca and will undergo detailed medical tests from Monday.
