Jason ColdironCorrespondent IOctober 15, 2016

Despite tendinitis, Rafael Nadal will play in the upcoming Wimbledon tennis event.

"I am going to give my 200 percent to be ready for the most important tournament in the world," Nadal said. "I will not go out and play, especially on the Wimbledon Centre Court, if I am not 100 percent ready to play.

"I have two difficult weeks ahead of me, especially because I won't be doing what I like doing most, which is to play tennis." (ESPN)

Nadal has opted for a course of physical therapy in preparation for the tournament.

"His treatment will involve oral anti-inflammatories, physiotherapy, as well as muscular exercises for both quadriceps," physical trainer Ruiz-Cotorro said.
