These old men are back! Borg tips Federer, Nadal for Wimbledon

These old men are back! Borg tips Federer, Nadal for Wimbledon

But his success on clay has clearly taken its toll and Nadal has been advised by medical staff to rest his body before the third Grand Slam of the year.

"It's a while since I didn't play a very good Wimbledon".

After a few days' rest, Nadal will travel to London to play in next week's Aegon Championships at Queen's Club, where he has competed only once since 2011. "Sorry to all of the great fans in Britain and to the tournament organizers, I hope to see you at Queen's next year". "I could not play past year because of injury so I look forward to returning to London in November".

Nadal, 31, announced on Tuesday that after consulting with his team and doctors, he will be missing the Queen's grass event next week, one of the two main warm-ups before Wimbledon.

As he sat in front of a TV to watch last year's French Open final, sidelined by an injured left wrist, Rafael Nadal had no way to know for sure, of course, that he would return to the height of his powers.

Rafael Nadal defeated Stan Wawrinka in straight sets Sunday in the final match of the tennis French Open, winning the grand slam for the 10th time in his career.

In addition to developing its own missiles, South Korea is now protected from a North Korean missile strike by a U.S. Some of the evidence at trial was purported security footage of Warmbier removing a political banner from his hotel.

His absence is a major blow to the tournament, although the field remains strong and is headed by defending champion Andy Murray, Stan Wawrinka and last year's beaten Wimbledon finalist Milos Raonic.

Nadal moved into sole possession of second place in men's majors, pulling away from American Pete Sampras and once again getting to within three of Federer. Nadal fell to Federer in two of the three title matches, but on clay, the Spaniard has been almost flawless. However, the most important thing is being one of the top four seeds (especially with Roger Federer's seed now unknown) and it is unlikely he loses that distinction.

With the win, Nadal extended his head-to-head lead over Wawrinka to a stellar 16-3, and improves to a ideal 10-0 in French finals.

"Not many people get the opportunity to lift those cups, but those who do are very proud, that I can promise".

After being ousted in five sets by rival Roger Federer at the Australian Open, the Spaniard has been nearly unstoppable.

The victory at Roland Garros saw Nadal fail to drop a single set throughout the entire tournament, losing just 35 games en route to his tenth title.
