Nadal play or Not before Wimbledon, French Open win, Take Decision

Rafael Nadal wouldn't play before Wimbledon decision after French Open win.

Rafael Nadal won his 12th French Open title with a four-set victory over Dominic Thiem in the final. 

Spanish, 33, Nadal re-wrote the history books with a 6-3 5-7 6-1 6-1 victory and has already started thinking about his preparation for Wimbledon - which gets underway on July 1

 In the upcoming week, there are two  ATP 500 events will be played at Queens and Halle, Mercedes Cup in Stuttgart and the Libema Open in s-Hertogenbosch.

  And speaking to the media after his victory on Sunday, Nadal told reporters he would rather rest than play an event before Wimbledon.

Rafael Nadal next game schedule before Wimbledon decision after French Open win.

He said: "I know I played a great event last year. I have been able to be very close to win another title there.

"As everybody knows, I love to play on grass. And as everybody knows, I am not able to play so many weeks in a row like I did 10 years ago, eight years ago. So I have to do my schedule.

"The last two years that I played in Wimbledon, I felt close again. Even though I lost to Gilles Muller in 2017, I played great tennis there too.

"I was very close to being in the quarter-finals, and last year I was one point away from the final.

"So I will not play before Wimbledon, of course. I felt competitive the last couple of years, so why do I need to change that?

"What gives me a better chance is being healthy more than playing a lot of matches before."

"Dominic, sorry you are one of the best examples we have on tour a very hard worker always with a smile on your face and a good person," Nadal said.

"Thanks for being a great inspiration for me and for a lot of small kids around the world i know how tough it is to lose finals but thats sport if i want to lose to someone it would be you because you deserve it well done and keep going - you will win this for sure.

"Thank you to everyone at Roland Garros. It's the best tournament in the world.

"Thanks to my team and family. Not long ago we didn't know if we could compete here it means a lot to me. thanks for supporting me in the most complicated times.

"I want to thank his majesty the King for coming to support me.

"I can't explain the emotion at holding the trophy a 12th time. I hope to return next year."
