Feliciano Lopez has replaced the injured Rafael Nadal on Spain's tennis team for the London Olympics.

The No. 30-ranked Lopez was called in by Spain on Friday after Nadal was forced to pull out with an undisclosed injury.

IT'S AMAZING

These athletes have proved why they're the biggest Olympic surprises.

Nadal, a record seven-time French Open champion, lost in the second round at Wimbledon last month and hasn't played since.

Marc Lopez was selected to take Nadal's place for doubles at the Olympics and will play with Marcel Granollers.

Nadal also was to be Spain's flag bearer for next Friday's opening ceremony at the London Games, but it wasn't immediately clear who would carry the flag in his place.

The Olympic tennis tournament will be played at Wimbledon from July 28-Aug. 5.
