Rafa Nadal rises two spots to No. 2 as Novak Djokovic slips to fourth his worst in over seven years

In fact, Rafa had to cut short his 2016 season due to a wrist injury.

Next up on the Slam list in three weeks' time is Wimbledon where Nadal was champion in 2008 and 2010 and runner-up in 2006, 2007 and 2011.

"For sure if it becomes 10 it will be my favourite".

The evergreen Spaniard produced a stunning performance to win his 10 French Open title, a record in the Open Era. "And I'm going to try to keep working hard to try to enjoy more handsome weeks". "Because I need to feel strong, low and powerful legs to play well in Wimbledon".

Rafael Nadal says it will be "almost impossible" to win a third Wimbledon title if his knees react to grass as they have in the past.

But Nadal has been advised by his team and medical staff to rest his body before the third Grand Slam of the year, Wimbledon.

The integrity of Queen's remains intact however, with world No. 1 Andy Murray committed to defending his title.

Nadal won clay titles this season in Monte Carlo, Barcelona and Madrid in addition to Roland Garros.

"He will win grand slams in the future and fight again for world number one".

This season, Nadal has compiled an ATP-best 43-6 match record with four titles.

Nadal won for the 16th time in 19 meetings with Wawrinka, who insisted there was plenty to be positive about following his recent performances.

"Nine here is probably hard". I am so impressed by Nadal.

He will step down after being at his nephew's side since boyhood.

"I am very emotional".

"It was the Rafa I was expecting". "It's just that I am apprehensive about my knees".

The 2008 champion in Queen's, Nadal's struggles on grass are well known at this point.

"But there is no doubt that he has been weak for a player with his abilities". This is the first time Nadal has won in Paris without dropping a set.

"Revenge is not part of my vocab".

Federer added that he has stopped playing any "dangerous sports" such as skiing and football as he grew older since "the risk of getting injured is just too big".

"He's the best player ever on clay". The Latvian, who turned 20 during the tournament, lost in the first round a year ago at Roland Garros. "I think I'm more unsafe when I mix my game with good services, volleys and strong play from the base line".
