Rafael Nadal announced he will return to Queen’s this summer. Nadal won the title in 2008 beating Novak Djokovic, but hasn’t played it since 2011.
“I am very happy to be coming back to Queen’s in June,” said Nadal. “Winning the title in 2008 is a great memory for me, the people that organize the event at Queen’s and the British crowds are fantastic, and it is the best way for me to be ready for Wimbledon.”
Following his runner-up finish at the Australian Open where he lost to Roger Federer, Nadal will embark on an aggressive schedule playing Rotterdam next week, then Acapulco followed by Masters events at Indian Wells and Miami in March.
Nadal will again play a heavy clay schedule entering Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Madrid and Rome before he begins his bid to win a 10th French Open. Then to the grass with Queen’s and Wimbledon before a break.
