Rafael Nadal to play ATP Queen's before Wimbledon

Rafael Nadal will play Queen´s before Wimbledon. The Spaniard will be back in the tournament where he won the title in 2008 and will join in the field Andy Murray, who signed a life-time contract with the event. ´I am very happy to be coming back to Queen´s in June,´ Nadal said through a statement.

'Winning the title in 2008 is a great memory for me, the people that organise the event at Queen’s and the British crowds are fantastic, and it is the best way for me to be ready for Wimbledon.´ Last time, the world no.

6 played Queen´s was in 2015 when he lost to Alexandr Dolgopolov in the first round level. Last year, he withdrew due to wrist injury. It will be a tough first half of the year for Nadal, who is scheduled to play eight events from now until July.
