David Ferrer is a doubt for Wimbledon after being forced to withdraw from the Topshelf Open due to stomach problems.

The top seed pulled out of the grass court event on Monday without featuring - and he also revealed he was suffering with flu before playing at this year's French Open.

"I'm not sure if I can play at Wimbledon," Ferrer said, who faces a battle to be fit in time for the third Grand Slam of the year, which begins on June 23.

"I'm going to talk with my doctor in Valencia tomorrow and see. It's been 10 days now and that's just too long for this problem," he added.
