Rafael Nadal pulls out of Wimbledon and the Tokyo Olympic Games

 

Rafael Nadal: "Hi all, I have decided not to participate at this year’s Championships at Wimbledon and the Olympic Games in Tokyo. It’s never an easy decision to take but after listening to my body and discuss it with my team I understand that it is the right decision.
The goal is to prolong my career and continue to do what makes me happy, that is to compete at the highest level and keep fighting for those professional and personal goals at he maximum level of competition.
The fact that there has only been 2 weeks between RG and Wimbledon, didn’t make it easier on my body to recuperate after the always demanding clay court season. They have been two months of great effort and the decision I take is focused looking at the mid and long term.
Sport prevention of any kind of excess in my body is a very important factor at this stage of my career in order to try to keep fighting for the highest level of competition and titles.
I want to send a special message to my fans around the world, to those in the United Kingdom and Japan in particular.
The Olympic Games always meant a lot and they were always a priority as a Sports person, I found the spirit that every sports person in the world wants to live. I personally had the chance to live 3 of them and had the honor to be the flag bearer for my country.“

2021 Roland Garros SF Rafael Nadal vs. Novak Djokovic  6-3 3-6 6-7(4) 2-6

Rafael Nadal: “No doubt he deserved to win. Probably was not my best day out there. Even if I [fought] and I put a lot of effort [in], the position on the shots has not been that effective tonight. Against a player like him that takes the ball early, you are not able to take him out of his positions, then is very difficult.”

“Even like this, I had the big chance with set point, 6-5, second serve. Anything could happen in that moment. Then I make a double-fault, easy volley in the tiebreak.”
