Help me try to know the players that withdrew from Wimbledon!

I am always getting crazy at each slam because I want to know who withdrew and when the player is not known or not seeded, we don't hear ANYTHING! Why do the GS draws don't have the little bottom explanations, with all the lucky losers spots explained and all the withdrawals listed :mad:

Anyways, I thought we could put our minds together and try to find the names :

As of now, 5 lucky loser spots are taken. This is what I know (add the informations and I will try to update this thread when I can). If I can't update, someone please copy my post and just make it your own ;) Thanks

Line 125 : Rafael Nadal (ESP) replaced by (LL)Alexander Peya (AUT)

Line 96 : (4)David Nalbandian (ARG) replaced by (33) Luis Horna (PER) replaced on line 123 by (LL)Stefano Pescosolido (ITA)

Line 87 : James Blake (USA) replaced by (LL)Potito Starace (ITA)

So there, we have three names : Rafael Nadal, David Nalbandian and James Blake. That's the only ones I know :confused: Feel free to update, either for the line number, player name, whatever ! :D

LL left : Julien Benneteau (FRA) and Davide Sanguinetti (ITA)

Thanks bunk18bsb :kiss: :hug:

Blake was replaced by Starace and it was Stefano Pescosolido who took Horna's spot (who took David's spot)

I don't think James has fully recovered from his spine injury from slamming into a netpost. He is 'expected' to be ready for the summer hardcourt season though ;)

According to his quasi-official site he is hitting again and hopes to be back for Newport...
