He has pulled out of next week's Aegon Championships at the Queen's Club in London. On Facebook he said -

"I am very sorry to say that I am not going to be able play Queen’s next week. I am sad to make this decision because I love Queen’s, I won the tournament in 2008 and every time I reached the Wimbledon final it was after playing Queen’s. I was hoping to take some days off and then be ready, but at 31, and after a long clay court season with all of the emotions of Roland Garros, and after speaking to my team and doctors, I have decided my body needs to rest if I am going to be ready to play Wimbledon. Sorry to all the great fans in Britain and to the tournament organisers. I hope to see you at Queen’s next year. "

Much better writers than me have waxed lyrical about the enormity of Rafa's achievement in winning his tenth Roland Garros title so I'm not going to attempt to compete. Go Google it.

If you want to check to whom he lost the mere 35 games to get there, you can look at our results section. I'm just going to post a few of my favourite pictures (of those I can use without penalty, anyway).

 
 
 
 
 
 
And these are here just because they are some I took when I was lucky enough to be there for this momentous occasion.
