LONDON (AP) — Nicolas Almagro of Spain has withdrawn from Wimbledon because of a foot injury.

The withdrawal of the 25th-seeded clay-court specialist means Vasek Pospisil of Canada has been promoted to the No. 31 seed and Russia’s Dmitry Tursunov elevated into the seedings at 32.

Wimbledon organizers take players’ grass-court records into account when assigning seedings rather than working purely off rankings.
