Nadal already working towards 11th French Open title

"I am sad to make this decision because I love Queen s, I won the tournament in 2008 and every time I reached the Wimbledon final it was after playing Queen s".

Nadal won a record 10th French Open championship Sunday after also winning clay-court titles in Monte Carlo, Barcelona and Madrid over the last two months.

"I think since the beginning of the year, you can see he's playing more aggressive, staying more close from the line".

This time a wrist injury forced him to pull out ahead of the third round and bothered him for the rest of the season. It's true that every year is going to be more and more hard, but I always have the motivation and Paris is always going to be really special for me.

"Absolutely he is one of the main favourites now for Wimbledon", Wilander was quoted as saying by Reuters following Nadal's win over Wawrinka.

"If I have pain in my knees, then I know from experience that it's nearly impossible", he said.

The former world number one is eager to get back to competition in 2017 after a 10-week layoff.

- The 21-year-old Nadal became the first man since Bjorn Borg in 1980 to win three successive titles at Roland Garros.

"It's insane", he said.

Fifteen-time Grand Slam Champion Rafael Nadal has withdrawn from the Aegon Championships at Queen's, which starts next Monday, after being advised to rest by his doctor.

Federer chose to skip the French Open this year and Wilander believes it was the right decision as he maintains his confidence going into the grass court swing of the season. I'm a practice world champion now and that's not who I want to be.
