Injury ruled out David Ferrer from Wimbledon 2015
World no seven David Ferrer quits Wimbledon with an elbow injury. The Spanish was set to play Britain’s James Ward in the first round. Italy’s Luca Vanni replaced him after he pulled out his name from the tournament.
Departure from Wimbledon brings ferrer’s streak of 50 consecutive Grand Slam appearances – the fifth longest in the Open Era – stretching back to the 2003 Australian Open.
But with Ferrer gone, Nadal could have an easy route to the last-eight where he could have a potential encounter against No.3 Andy Murray.
Defending men’s champion Novak Djokovic will take charge on the opening play on Centre Court against Germany’s Philipp Kohlschreiber at All England Club.
