Murray ended 2016 at No. 1 after a string of successes, including a Wimbledon title, an unprecedented second consecutive Olympic gold medal and runner-up finishes at the Australian Open and French Open. No other men's tennis player has won more than seven singles French titles.

"I've had a great season so far and I am happy to have already qualified for London", the Spaniard told the ATP website.

Nadal's victory in Paris gave him a record 10th trophy at the clay-court tournament and ended his three-year drought without a Grand Slam title.

But that was before any knee trouble and the 31-year-old has lost to opponents ranked between No 100 and No 144 in his last four appearances at the All England Club.

"I have doubts every day but that's good as it makes me work hard with more intensity", he said.

I don't think there is a better defensive player than him.

But the song remained the same, Nadal taking the set in the ninth game, just moments after Wawrinka, who knocked out world number one Andy Murray in the semis, had destroyed a racquet in utter frustration.

On the other hand, the former number one and three-time champion here, Djokovic is still struggling with his performances, and he admitted recently after being eliminated in Paris, that after a long time in his career, he can not find his game and that he is now lost.

The 30-year-old is hoping his performance at Roland Garros is a sign he is getting back to that level.

Queens, a high-profile Wimbledon warm-up tournament, start a week after the French Open concludes and ends just a week before the grass-court Grand Slam starts.

"At 4-1 in the third set I knew I was close. It's unbelievable. It's the last time as coach but I hope I can see more times him playing here". "I play my best at all events, but the feeling here is impossible to describe".

The Spaniard dominated the summit clash completely and didn't allow the third seeded player to stage a comeback into the match. The following year he reclaimed the title and won it five years in row.

He said: "I want to progress".

While the majority of Nadal's 15 Grand Slam titles have come on clay, he has also beaten Federer in Grand Slam finals both on grass and the hardcourt.

"At Wimbledon, however, you have to play low... that puts a great deal of pressure on my knees".

Against world number three Wawrinka, his record is now 16 wins and three losses.
