If Rafael Nadal hadn't been involved in professional tennis at the same time as Roger Federer, then we could be talking about the most decorated player of a generation.

As we have it, Nadal sits three majors behind the Fed with 15 titles, and eight behind the record holder Ken Rosewall who clinched 23 major titles.

The latest of those came just a few weeks ago in Paris, as the Spaniard romped to 'La Decima' better known as his 10th French Open victory, and his first major since 2014.

He did so without dropping a set along the way, fully living up to his nickname of the 'Master of the Clay', and back to his best maybe.

It certainly puts him bang in form for Wimbledon, as long as he can transform his game from clay to grass. Something that hasn't been quite so easy as you would expect for Nadal in recent seasons, especially after a good start to the season.

Rafa has made the Australian Open final in three of the last six seasons, and on all three occasions followed up with victory at Roland Garros. However, he was dumped out in the second round of Wimbledon in 2012, and then

could only make the fourth round in 2014. So could we see him make another quick exit this July?

Tennis fans will be hoping not, as there is something a bit nostalgic as we head into Wimbledon this year.

While the likes of Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic struggle for form, the two legends of the game have landed both of this year's majors. Federer in Australia and then Nadal in France.

So could we be set to see another classic Wimbledon campaign from the pair who have shared nine of the last 14 men's singles titles at SW19?
