Not playing at Queens this year: Rafael Nadal

25 June 2017

The Swede added that Federer's absence at Roland Garros gave him the luxury of not having his confidence dented by an imperious Nadal, who didn't drop a set and lost just 35 games in Paris.

However, his last four visits have all ended with defeats to opponents outside the top 100.

He said: "There has been a little while since I played a very good Wimbledon". It's true that after 2012 what happened with my knees has made it tougher and tougher to compete on grass. "Andy Murray at his best will give him a great run but if Rafa comes up and starts whipping the balls all over the place like he has here, he'll be really risky". This has been his lowest ranking in seven years.

While Nadal's decision will disappoint fans attending the event, Queen's still have a star-studded group of players in line to attend next week's event.

"If you're not completely free. you don't want him to take the lead and play even more freely", said Wawrinka, who became US Open champion previous year. "I do [it] every day".

Though, Rafa will probably play Boodles exhibition event the week before Church Road event so that he can see how he feels on grass. "Today I lost the final but three weeks ago I was feeling down, I had doubts about my game", said Wawrinka.

In 2005, Nadal played his first clay court match at the French open against the German Lars Burgsmuller and won that match by 6-1, 7-6, 6-1. The Spaniard is playing his best tennis since 2014 and enters the 2017 Wimbledon as a legitimate threat to the likes of Andy Murray, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic.
