The 14-times Grand Slam champion missed the entire grasscourt season last year with a wrist injury but after finishing runner-up to Roger Federer at the Australian Open, he hopes a good run in west London will bode well in his pursuit of a third Wimbledon title. 

“I am very happy to be coming back to Queen’s.... It is the best way for me to be ready for Wimbledon,” he said. He lifted the Wimbledon trophy for the first time in 2008 just three weeks after his maiden triumph at Queen’s Club. 

Nadal’s second Wimbledon title in 2010 also followed a good run at Qu een’s and he reached the Wimbledon final five times between 2006 and 2011, making the quarters or better at the London warm-up event prior to each one.
