Pre-Wimbledon Updates: Nadal to test knees in London exos

World number one and Wimbledon's top seed this year, Rafael Nadal, has hit the practice courts at the All England Club on Tuesday and has announced his participation in two exhibition matches against Lleyton Hewitt and Stanislas Wawrinka, at the Hurlingham Club on Thursday, hoping to test his injured knee before making the final decision on whether he can play Wimbledon or not.

Nadal's verdict on the knees after his practice on Tuesday was : "Not perfect, but OK."

The reigning Wimbledon and Australian Open champion also had a practice session with British hope, Andy Murray, on Wednesday after which Murray said that "Rafa was hitting the ball well."

Am sure all Rafa fans are crossing their fingers like myself. Lets hope we hear good news after the exos.
