Rafael Nadal, who suffered a shock defeat after being knocked out in the first round of the Queen’s tournament, insists that he is feeling confident and his loss would not hamper his chances at Wimbledon’s.
The Spaniard’s disappointing 2015 campaign suffered yet another setback when he was knocked out of the Wimbledon warm-up event by Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov.
Nadal, who won his first grass-court title at Queen’s in 2008, maintains that he is happy as he has already got enough practice on grass and put the loss down to the misfortune of facing an inspired opponent, Sport24 reported.
Nadal said that he prefers to win all the matches, not just before Wimbledon, but to win all the matches of the year.
He said that it was nothing negative and he won a tournament last week and this week he lost an opportunity.
He added that he was feeling food about his tennis and was mentally felling positive.
