Rafael Nadal gets £750k to play in Halle in 2012

Rafael Nadal won´t be playing the AEGON Championships at Queen’s Club in 2012 as he signed up for the Gerry Weber Open in Hallep.

Nadal accepted around £750,000 to play in Halle.

Chris Kermode, tournament director of the AEGON Championships, admitted: ‘Rafa will not be with us next year.

‘It’s disappointing, but we know how much he enjoys our event and we hope to be welcoming him back soon.’

The Queen’s tournament is now owned by the LTA and they would find it hard to justify more than £400,000 going to Nadal.

Andy Murray, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Andy Roddick are also expected to be in Queens.
