Rohan Bopanna has withdrawn from the ATP tennis tournament to be played in Bastad, Sweden, next week.

A pinched nerve in the neck has been troubling Bopanna and he had retired in the third set of the second round in Wimbledon doubles, as
he could not lift his arm to serve. "Hand not yet okay. So, have pulled out. I had a hit this morning, to check whether I could play’’, said Bopanna, when contacted in London on Friday.

Bopanna had tied up with Divij Sharan to compete in the ATP event in Sweden. He will wait to play the next series of tournaments in Europe and America before the Asian Games in Palembang, Indonesia.
