Injured wrist results in Rafael Nadal out of French Open

Nine-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal pulled out of the Grand Slam tournament on Friday, due to an injury to his left wrist. This decision has stunned the French Open but It cleared one potential obstacle from the path of No. 1 Novak Djokovic, who is attempting to win a fourth consecutive major title and his first in Paris — and could have faced Nadal in the semifinals. This is the latest setback the 29-year-old Spaniard has suffered in an injury-plagued career. But he hoped would be fit to play at Wimbledon next month.

While, the winning expedition of Andy Murray and Stanislas Wawrinka continued as they reached to the last 16 but third seed Wawrinka, scheduled to face Murray in the semi-finals.
