Roger Federer Pays Tribute To Rafa Nadal's French Open Victory

Roger Federer Pays Tribute To Rafa Nadal's French Open Victory”

Days after lifting a historic 10th French Open title, tennis star Rafael Nadal has announced that as a result of the gruelling clay-court season, he will not be playing at Queens this year.

Rafael Nadal also went on to say that his feelings while he plays on "this court" cannot be compared to any other "feeling". Thank you to the organisers, the other players, to all the people that make this tournament possible.

The Spaniard becomes the first man to win 10 titles at a single Grand Slam and, if he continues to play like this, then Margaret Court's all-time record of 11 triumphs at a Major looks certain to fall.

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

It is a first grand slam final defeat for the Swiss, who won the Australian Open in 2014, here two years ago and the US Open last summer. "In this final, to win the Decima is very, very special".

The 31-year-old Spaniard has coasted into a 10th French Open final without dropping a set. However, the most important thing is being one of the top four seeds (especially with Roger Federer's seed now unknown) and it is unlikely he loses that distinction.

Nadal started the second set as he had ended the first, sending Wawrinka running all over the base line with a series of ferocious forehands and breaking early to establish a 3-0 lead.

His collection of Slams now stands just three behind great rival Roger Federer, a staggering statistic coming just a year after he quit Roland Garros with a wrist injury. If I have pain in the knees, then I know from experience that it's nearly impossible.

Young Austrian Dominic Thiem is third in the ATP race to London, followed by Stan Wawrinka, Alexander Zverev, Novak Djokovic, world number one Andy Murray, and Belgium's David Goffin.

"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 past year.

"The feeling that I have here is impossible to describe for me, the nerves and the adrenaline that I feel in this court", said Nadal, whose 15th Grand Slam title moved him one ahead of Pete Sampras.
