Nadal focuses on Wimbledon success after French Open

Rafael Nadal is determined to make an impact at Wimbledon again after winning his ninth French Open title on Sunday.

The Spaniard, 28, beat Novak Djokovic 3-6 7-5 6-2 6-4 to win for a record fifth successive time at Roland Garros.

Nadal is now focused on making up for last year’s first-round defeat at the All England Club.

Nadal struggled with the switch from clay to grass last year as he was on the way back from seven months out with a knee injury.

He made a shock first-round exit against world number 135 Steve Darcis of Belgium, and it is now four years since he won his second Wimbledon title.

Nadal has now won 14 Grand Slam titles, three behind Roger Federer’s erecord total, but refuses to target the Swiss player’s mark.

“We will see when I finish my career how many Grand Slams I have or if I win four, three, or five in a row,” he said.

“The most important thing today is I won the most important tournament of the world on clay, probably the most important tournament of the year for me.”

Djokovic has now lost five of his last six Grand Slam finals, and this time his challenge faded in the hot conditions after he lost the second set.
