Ivanisevic unlikely to defend Wimbledon title
Croatia's Goran Ivanisevic is unlikely to defend his title at next month's Wimbledon tennis championships due to a should injury.

Press reports in Zagreb say the 30-year-old veteran has been hampered by tendonitis in his left shoulder and will have an operation.

Ivanisevic won last year's Wimbledon against all the odds after receiving a wildcard into the tournament.

He was quoted in Monday's Sportske Novosti newspaper as saying: "The way things are, there's no sense in it," referring to the futility of playing the event because of his injury.

Ivanisevic had previously said he would be retiring after the event at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, but only if his left shoulder continued to give him problems.
