Nadal not expecting to win Wimbledon again

The Spaniard, 31, is one of the favourites after winning the French Open here for a record 10th time but believes it would be "almost impossible" to claim his third Wimbledon title if his knees prove as troublesome on grass as they have in recent years.

A crushing 6-2 6-3 6-1 victory over Stan Wawrinka on Court Philippe Chatrier made the 31-year-old Spaniard the most successful player at a single slam in the professional era.

"I am very sorry to say that I am not going to be able play Queen's next week", he wrote on a post on his Facebook page.

"It's not that I am apprehensive about playing on grass", said Nadal who won on the grass surface in 2008 and 2010. "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 missed playing Wimbledon again [last year], so I hope that my knees will hold up well and that I can have the preparation that I really need and want".

The sporting world witnessed Rafael Nadal make yet more history at Roland Garros, yesterday, as the King of Clay comprehensively defeated Stan Wawrinka in straight sets to lift his TENTH French Open title.

And Nadal? Both he and his uncle Toni, who is also his coach, keep pointing to one key factor when it comes to how he'll fare at the All England Club.

"I think Rafa winning the French Open is less of a surprise because he'd done it nine times before". Nadal extended his record at the French Open to 79-2, losing just two matches in thirteen seasons on the French soil.

But the 32-year-old, the oldest Roland Garros finalist in 44 years, had no answers as Nadal eclipsed Pete Sampras on the all-time list of major champions with 15 titles.

On the other side, a few investment institutions hold more conservative views on the probability of MSCI's acceptance. If a deal is finally hammered out, A-shares would account for just 0.5 percent of the MSCI Emerging Markets Index .

It is a slight blow to the tournament but the field is led by world number one Andy Murray, who is the defending champion and has won Queen's on five occasions. Nadal won six break points out of thirteen.

His last Grand Slam title before this year's Roland Garros came in Paris in 2014 and he admitted that there were doubts over whether or not he'd recover his former powers.

"There have been magical things that happened for me at the French Open", he told reporters here. The fact that Federer chose to give the French Open and the entire clay court season a miss this year shows that he is fully aware of his age-imposed limitations.
