The French Open champion has said that he will see how his body recovers after a long clay court campaign. Nadal has 2 Wimbledon titles but has failed to make impression in the recent years of the tournament.
“Difficult for me to think about it now. I had a long and mentally tough clay court season, of course, because I played almost all the matches possible after coming from an injury. So it was a demanding two months for me,” “I would love to be playing in as many places as possible, but you understand I need to check how I feel in the next couple of days, of course it’s a drastic change from clay to grass. I did it in the past when I was much younger, quicker, because I played back to back.” Nadal told reporters after his 6-4 6-3 6-2 defeat of Dominic Thiem in Paris.
Nadal’s long term nemesis Roger Federor the world number two, skipped the clay court season to concentrate on Wimbledon, where he will be going for a ninth title. Nadal spent several months of the year on the injury bed after sustaining injury in Australian Open.
Nadal could avoid this year’s Wimbledon to see his long term interest.
Yet Nadal also knows he could be a threat after playing impressively last year before falling in the last 16, losing a classic tussle against Luxembourg’s Gilles Muller.“Last year I felt that I had a good opportunity to go far in the tournament. I felt myself playing well on grass last year,” the Spaniard said.
