Mardy Fish has withdrawn from next week's Aegon Championships at the Queen's Club in London because of the flu, according to tennis writer and broadcaster Ravi Ubha and Doug Robson of USA Today. Robson also reported that Fish is questionable for Wimbledon, which begins June 24.

Fish, 31, has not played since losing to 103rd-ranked Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo at the Savannah Challenger on April 23. After that match, he decided to skip the European clay-court season. He has played only three matches since the U.S. Open last year, when he withdrew from his fourth-round match because of health reasons. In May 2012, Fish had a procedure to correct faulty wiring in his heart.

In other Queen's Club news, Andy Murray appears poised to play next week's tournament. Murray withdrew from the French Open after aggravating a back injury during the clay season, which caused him to retire from the Italian Open. "Barring no setbacks in the next couple of days I will be making an appearance at the club of the queen next week!" Murray tweeted Tuesday.
