Rafael Nadal to Skip Wimbledon, Olympics to Prolong Career

Rafael Nadal said he won’t participate in Wimbledon or the Tokyo Olympic Games in an effort to prolong his tennis career.

Nadal cited a compressed schedule with Wimbledon starting two weeks after the French Open finished up. The Spaniard fell in the semifinals to Novak Djokovic, who went on to win the major.
