Nadal out of Queen's to rest for Wimbledon

Nadal out of Queen's to rest for Wimbledon

Federer, who is sporting a new short-cropped haircut, will also be playing in next week's tournament in Halle, where he has won the title eight times. "For me it's about getting back to winning ways, where I left off in Miami".

The Aegon Championships will feature world number one and defending champion Andy Murray, U.S. Open champion Stan Wawrinka, 2014 victor Grigor Dimitrov, and last year's runner-up Milos Raonic.

"I hope to see you at Queen s next year".

This time a wrist injury forced him to pull out ahead of the third round and bothered him for the rest of the season.

"We know every year is more hard to win a grand slam title".

"Absolutely he is one of the main favourites now for Wimbledon", Wilander was quoted as saying by Reuters following Nadal's win over Wawrinka. He lost in the quarterfinals at Roland Garros, which he won a year ago.

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

"It's insane", he said.

French Open men's champion Rafael Nadal has moved up two spots to No. 2 in the ATP rankings, his highest placing since October 2014.

- At just 19, Nadal became the youngest victor of a Grand Slam title since Michael Chang won at Roland Garros in 1989 at 17.

In a bid to address that, the 32-year-old has added Roger Federer's former coach Paul Annacone to his team for the grass-court season. The seven-times Wimbledon champion, who skipped the whole clay-court season in order to focus on grass and the subsequent North American hard-court stretch, is competing this week in Stuttgart and had his first practice session there on Sunday.
