Nadal announces Wimbledon warm-up plan

6:23 am on 16 June 2009

Rafael Nadal will warm up for the defence of his Wimbledon tennis title at an exhibition tournament at the Hurlingham Club in London later this week.

The world number one has accepted an invitation to the traditional exhibition, so long as his recovery from tendonitis in his knees is going well enough.

Nadal believes it would be a good test of his fitness.
