  • Nadal: 10th Roland Garros win is 'indescribable'

After a 6-2, 6-3, 6-1 tour de force against Stan Wawrinka in the final at Roland Garros on Sunday, capping two weeks of almost flawless tennis on red clay - zero sets conceded; only 35 games dropped in seven matches - Nadal was asked whether he would rate himself as highly as ever right now.

The newly-reinstated French Open champion withdrew from next week's Aegon Championships at Queen's, citing consultations with his medical team.

Meanwhile while looking back at the magical clay court season when he won a 10 title at Monte Carlo and Barcelona and a fifth at Madrid, before achieving the La Decima at Roland Garros, the Spaniard finally admitted that winning the French Open for the 10 time had indeed been "special".

"It's been a while since I played a good Wimbledon", Nadal said in the wake of his crushing 6-2, 6-3, 6-1 victory here over Stan Wawrinka in the final.

"Sorry to all the great fans in Britain and to the tournament organizers". I missed playing Wimbledon again [last year], so I hope my knees will hold up well and that I can have the preparation that I really need.

Nadal, the 2008 victor at Queen's, enjoyed another tremendous clay-court season, capped off by securing a record 10th crown at Roland Garros last week.

Even at the Australian Open, if not for an inspired Roger Federer, the 31-year-old would be in the hunt for a calendar Grand Slam.

While Nadal insists he will be ready for Wimbledon, it is natural now to wonder if he indeed will have that body of his, which has gone through multiple injuries, ready to go in the most popular major of the year.

A year later, Nadal saw off Federer in the Australian Open final and also has a ideal record against his Swiss counterpart in Roland Garros finals, triumphing over Federer in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2011.

The Spaniard is now 2,605 points away from Andy Murray, the world number one. The beaten finalist at Roland Garros and the current US Open champion Stan Wawrinka is amongst the field.

"I'm a practice world champion now, but that's not who I want to be".

"I am not sure I will meet any player who can do better than me and win the French Open titles a couple of times".

"I don't know. I can not say (yes); I can not say not".

In an interview to ABC, Burgsmuller, who now works as doctor, spoke about one of the most unforgettable matches in his career.

"I think Rafa winning the French Open is less of a surprise because he'd done it nine times before".
