‘Listening to my body’: Nadal to sit out Wimbledon, Olympics
(AP) - Rafael Nadal says he will sit out Wimbledon and the Tokyo Olympics to rest and recover. The 35-year-old Spaniard wrote on social media that his goal is ``to prolong my career and continue to do what makes me happy.’'
Nadal lost to Novak Djokovic in the semifinals of the French Open last week. Nadal is tied with Roger Federer for the most Grand Slam titles won by a man with 20.
Nadal’s total includes a record 13 trophies from the French Open and two from Wimbledon. He also owns two Olympic gold medals.
