Friday's biggest stunner at the French Open didn't take place on the court, but in the press room. There, Rafael Nadal announced that he was pulling out of the tournament with a wrist injury:
The oft-injured Spaniard, who will turn 30 on June 3, looked no worse for wear during his first two matches, losing a combined nine games to Sam Groth and Facundo Bagnis. He won the Monte Carlo Masters and Barcelona tournaments before Roland Garros, and then took losses to Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray in the later rounds of the Madrid and Rome Masters.
This has actually been one of the healthier stretches of Nadal's career, so today's events are particularly jarring.
