Rumors about Rafa’s possible participation in this event at Hurlingham Cub have been mulling around for awhile now. As ekattor pointed out in a comment thread, Rafa’s site has been updated with the following information:
“I have kindly been invited to play the traditional exhibition at the Hurlingham Club on Friday, June 19. I have played at that Club for several years now. It would be a good test for me to play there on Friday to see how the knee is doing and it would provide the perfect setting to get some practice before Wimbledon. If I feel the recuperation is going well I will be more than happy to be there again. I hope that’s the case,” said Nadal.
