Rafael Nadal is withdrawing from competing for Spain in the London Summer Olympics, NBC Sports reports.

Nadal reportedly said that he is "not in condition to compete" at the Olympics, which begin next week.

Currently ranked as the #3 men's tennis player in the world by the ATP, the Spanish tennis star won the gold medal in Men's Singles in the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

Nadal is an 11-time Grand Slam Singles champion, a record that includes seven French Open titles.
