Rafael Nadal is expected to pull out of Wimbledon with an abdominal...

Tests conducted on Thursday indicated that during his match with Taylor Fritz, Nadal suffered a 7mm injury in one of his abdominal muscles.

“Unfortunately I am here because I have to pull out from the tournament,” Nadal told the press.

“I was thinking the whole day about the decision to make but I think it doesn’t make sense to go [on court].

“Even if I tried a lot in my career to keep going in very tough circumstances.

“I think it’s obvious if I keep going the injury is gonna get worse and worse and that’s the thing that I can say now.”

Nadal was set to compete against Kyrgios, with a potential final versus Novak Djokovic, but he does not believe he can win either match.

“It’s not only that I can’t serve at the right speed it’s that I can’t do the normal moment to serve,” Nadal went on.

“To imagine myself winning two matches… and for respect to myself in some way, I don’t want to go out there and not be competitive enough.

“I can’t risk that much and stay two, three months outside of the competition because that’s going to be a tough thing for me.

“If that happens, it happens, but not because I was not doing things the proper way.”

Rafael Nadal has withdrawn from a tournament for the sixth time before competing.
