Rafael Nadal says he is feeling good ahead of Wimbledon after pulling out of his scheduled warm-up event at Queen's Club.
For the second year in a row, the Spaniard decided to stay at home in Majorca to practise after a heavy clay-court campaign ended with victory at the French Open.
Nadal, who is seeded second behind Roger Federer, said: "I'm feeling good. I decided to be here in Wimbledon again. It's a very special event, of course. I always loved to be around here.
"It was not positive for me to not play Queen's. I was sad to not have the chance to be there. On the other hand, I didn't go there because I played a lot on clay. So I was very happy.
"I am not 20 any more. I have to take decisions on the schedule sometimes. The body needed a rest, needed a slow adaptation to adapt to the grass. That's what I did."
Nadal is 13/2 to win Wimbledon with Sky Bet.
