Marin Cilic, seeded 14, and a potential round of 16 foe for Rafael Nadal, has pulled out of the draw due to testing positive for Covid-19.

“I am sad to share that I tested positive for Covid,” Cilic wrote on social media. “I have been self-isolating and was hopeful I would be ready but unfortunately I am still feeling unwell.”

Cilic owns a 80-32 record on grass and was the runner-up at Wimbledon in 2017.
