Nadal's best performances at Wimbledon have come after playing well in Queen's




Number one tennis player in the world Rafael Nadal will once again return to the prestigious Queen's tennis Championships as part of his preparation for Wimbledon. The Spaniard won his sole title at the event ten years ago when he completed his remarkable treble - winning the French Open, Queen's Championships and Wimbledon.

"I am very excited to communicate that I am going to come to Queen's in 2018, Nadal said. It is going to be the 10th anniversary of my victory in 2008, it is a great memory, winning there and three weeks later winning Wimbledon. It was an unforgettable year."

Though the Spaniard has not gone past the 4th round at Wimbledon since 2011, his best performances at the All England Club have come after playing at The Queen's Club. The 16-time major champion made the quarter-finals or better in Queen's en route to reaching the Wimbledon final in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2011.

He joins five-time Queen's Club champion Andy Murray in a stellar lineup, as the British number makes his comeback following his rehabilitation from hip surgery.
