Rafael Nadal has been replaced by Feliciano Lopez on Spain’s tennis team for the London Olympics, reported the New York Post. Lopez, ranked at 30, was called in by Spain after Nadal was forced to pull out due to injury. Nadal, a record seven-time French Open champion, lost in the second round at Wimbledon last month and has not played since. Marc Lopez will be playing in his place for doubles at the Olympics with Marcel Granollers. The Olympic tennis tournament will be played at Wimbledon from July 28.
