Nadal Out of Halle Grass Event to Rest From French Open

June 8 (Bloomberg) -- Rafael Nadal has withdrawn from next week’s grass-court tournament in Halle, Germany, to rest.

Nadal told organizers of the Gerry Weber Open this morning he won’t be playing at the Wimbledon warm-up event in order to recover from the French Open, where he meets fellow Spaniard David Ferrer in tomorrow’s final.

Nadal, 27, yesterday beat top-ranked Novak Djokovic of Serbia in a five-set semifinal match in Paris that lasted almost five hours.

“After these past months and all the matches I have been able to play, my doctors have recommended to rest after Roland Garros,” Nadal said in on the tournament’s website.

Wildcard Mischa Zverev of Germany will replace Nadal in the tournament, which begins in two days.
