What’s been said?

Rafael Nadal has withdrawn from Wimbledon, after explaining that he has made the decision in order to prolong his career following talks with his team.

Former Wimbledon champion Andy Murray says it is disappointing that the Spaniard won’t be featuring at SW19.

“Obviously it’s a shame, shame for him, shame for the tournaments,” said Murray.

Dominic Thiem says he is feeling well again and is ready to compete at Wimbledon following a shock first-round defeat at the French Open.

The Austrian said: “Straight after Roland Garros I was going back on a practice court for almost two weeks on a hard court, still at home, just to fix my shots again, because they were not as they should be in the clay-court season.

“Now I feel well again with my shots, with my footwork. I practised two days in Austria on grass courts and already four days in Mallorca and I feel pretty well.

“But on grass, you never know what is going to happen. The most important for me was to fix my shots, to improve my footwork, to move well again on the court and that’s what I did in Austria.”
