04:48 PM ET 06.05 | To say Rafael Nadal's decision not to defend his Queen's Club title next week puts his Wimbledon participation in doubt is probably jumping to false conclusions. However, the concern for the long-term future of the world No 1 is once again brought starkly into focus with those troublesome knees. The warning signs have been flashing for the hugely popular Spaniard for several years. Many have stated that his style of play could not be more brutal on his body. The knees, or to be more specific the tendons, suffer the brunt of the pounding. Everyone who holds the sport of tennis dear hopes that Rafa Nadal will be fit enough to defend his Wimbledon title. Many who have seen him frankly play too much for the continued health of his body over the last couple of years are racked with doubt whether we will still be watching him in a couple of years time.
