WIMBLEDON, England – Rafael Nadal will not defend his Wimbledon title.

The top-seeded Spaniard announced Friday he is withdrawing because of tendinitis in his knees.

He is the first reigning Wimbledon men’s champion to not defend the title since Goran Ivanisevic in 2002 – and only the second in the last 35 years.

The grass-court Grand Slam tournament begins Monday.
