Rafa Nadal says winning a French Open-Wimbledon double for the third time in his career will be “complicated” but is highly motivated to have a go as he prepares for the grasscourt season.

The 31-year-old captured an unprecedented 10th Roland Garros title in sensational style on Sunday, thrashing Switzerland’s Stan Wawrinka in the final after a faultless fortnight in Paris.

Nadal, never one to fuel the hype, warned against installing him as a favourite on the Wimbledon lawns where he has also lost three finals; especially as his recent record there is dismal.

Nadal’s incredible form – he is 43-6 so far this season – means there is also the strong possibility of overhauling Andy Murray and ending the year as world number one for the first time since 2013.
