WATCH: Tennis Channel Live discusses Rafael Nadal's participation at Wimbledon after the Spaniard recovered from his foot injury.

Sebastian Korda has announced he is withdrawing from Wimbledon, saying foot problems will keep him from appearing in the grass-court Grand Slam.

The 21-year-old issued a statement following his defeat to John Millman in a first-round contest at the ATP Eastbourne grass warmup.

"I have been dealing with terrible shin splints and beaten up feet for quite some time now," Korda said on social media.


Other foot injury withdrawals include No. 2 Alexander Zverev, who recently underwent right ankle surgery, and Naomi Osaka, who is having ongoing heel problems with her left Achilles tendon.

Korda is No. 46 in the rankings, having reached as high as No. 30 this season, and was coming off reaching the second round of Halle and third round of the French Open.

The rising young player also said he had been advised to "rest and recuperate" and aimed to be back for the hard court season, though he did not specify an event.

Korda's spot will be filled by a lucky loser from the qualifying competition.
