London: Sam Querrey has withdrawn from Wimbledon with an arm injury, tournament organizers said on Wednesday.

The big-serving Californian complained of arm pain at Queen`s Club last week where he was surprisingly beaten by British wildcard James Ward.

Querrey, ranked 40 in the world, won the Queen`s tournament last year and went on to reach the fourth round at Wimbledon where he lost to Britain`s Andy Murray.

The American number three`s place in the draw will go to a lucky loser from the qualifying tournament.
