Nadal to miss Queen’s Club tournament to rest

These two weeks have been a great level of tennis, is true.The Swiss, who beat Nadal in the 2014 Australian Open final, was dismantled 6-2 6-3 6-1 on Sunday as Nadal won his 10th Roland Garros title. But the 31-year-old’s chances of success at the All England Club, and a 16th major title, appear slim after his decision to miss the grass-court lead-up.He collapsed to the court when Wawrinka sent a backhand into the net and seconds later an emotional Nadal sunk his head into his towel while in his chair. “So that’s the thing that I am more proud”, said Nadal. 10, 11 or nine.”Then I won Geneva and I reached the final of a grand slam”. Now he’s going to be thinking going into the next three slams Novak (Djokovic) held all four.”Rafa could arrive here next year in May with 18″. And while his own resurgence this year has taken him aback, Federer insists that Rafael Nadal’s return to claycourt dominance was not so unexpected.Roger Federer will begin his grasscourt campaign and bid for an eighth Wimbledon crown at Stuttgart on Wednesday insisting that he’s rested enough.”But he is too good a player for this to continue indefinitely”.Rafael Nadal pulled out of his principle lead-in event to Wimbledon on Tuesday night, raising the question of how big a challenge he will be able to mount on the grass court this summer.He lost just one match on clay while his win on Sunday took his Paris record to a staggering 79 wins and just two losses. “That’s the reality”, said Nadal.Wawrinka, who may have been feeling the effects of an epic semi-final against Andy Murray, started slowly and could not get into the match.After being ousted in five sets by rival Roger Federer at the Australian Open, the Spaniard has been nearly unstoppable.”Nadal has changed his game and he is playing way more aggressive, closer to the baseline, it’s a different Nadal”. He’ll go to Wimbledon with so much confidence. “For me he’s favourite with Federer but Federer won’t have the confidence of coming in as French Open champion”.First game of the third set and Nadal broke again as Wawrinka suffered further damage.”I love grass. Everybody knows that”.”I am playing well”.”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.
