David Ferrer Withdraws From Wimbledon Due to Elbow Injury

LONDON—David Ferrer, the eighth seed at Wimbledon, withdrew on Sunday due to an elbow injury.

Since he withdrew after the draw, Wimbledon will not shuffle the seeds. Instead lucky loser Luca Vanni will take Ferrer’s spot to play against wild card James Ward in the first round.

Without Ferrer, the third round is open to Vanni, Ward, Jiri Vesely, Paolo Lorenzi, Vasek Pospisil, Vincent Millot, and American Tim Smyczek. It also means tenth seed Rafael Nadal’s journey to the quarterfinals became easier.

Ferrer played in 50 straight Grand Slams, which is the fifth longest streak. Roger Federer owns the record at 62.
