(Tennis) Almagro withdraws injured from Wimbledon
(06-19 19:16)

Spain's Nicolas Almagro has withdrawn injured from Wimbledon, tournament organisers confirmed on Thursday.
The 28-year-old clay-court specialist was named among the seeds on Wednesday and in his absence Canadian 23-year-old Vasek Pospisil is promoted into the top 32.
Pospisil becomes the 31st seed, ahead of Russian Dmitry Tursunov, who has lost in the first round in four of the last five years at the grasscourt tournament.
"Nicolas Almagro has withdrawn from the gentlemen's singles due to a foot injury,'' the Wimbledon referees office announced.
Almagro, ranked 26 in the world, reached the third round of the season's third Grand Slam four times. --AFP
