Can Rafael Nadal finally put an end to his long Wimbledon drought?

Wimbledon 2018 gets underway on Monday and world number 1 Rafael Nadal is positive about his form and confidence. He has been in good form and has won 3 of his last 5 Grand Slams. Having not reached even the last 16 in Wimbledon since 2011, can this Wimbledon be any different for Rafael Nadal? Or Would Roger Federer add another feather to his cap by continuing the beautiful love story between him and Wimbledon? 

Rafael Nadal said that he will find his confidence at Wimbledon. He said that he felt happy about taking a break by skipping the tournament at Queen’s. Rafael Nada has won the Wimbledon twice. He first won it in 2008 and then in 2010 but since 2011 Wimbledon has been a miserable hunting ground for him. But in recent times he has won the US Open in 2017 and last two French Open finals as well.

Roger Federer and Wimbledon

Roger Federer, the Swiss prodigy has the most Wimbledon wins ever to his name. With 8 Wimbledon titles in his career, he stands on cloud-nine of success in Wimbledon. He would once again start as the favourite as the defending champion. He has the most Wimbledon titles both, in the open era and across all eras of the game.

Andy Murray Doubtful

Former world number 1 Andy Murray who made a comeback at Queen’s after 11 months is still unsure about playing at Wimbledon 2018. He has been struggling with fitness and has said that he will only play if he is fit.
