A flu-stricken Mardy Fish has pulled out of Queen's Club and is questionable for Wimbledon, USA Today reports. The former Top 10 player has only played once tournament since the 2012 U.S. Open due to heart trouble and anxiety. Fish will make a decision next week.

Brian Baker has decided that he will not return to the ATP tour until the week of July 22. Baker was sidelined after sustaining a tear to his lateral meniscus during the second round of the Australian Open in January. Baker has been granted an entry protection ranking of No. 56 because he will not have played for six months.
