Rafa Nadal has no intention of missing Wimbledon – as long as his body allows.

The Spaniard dismissed rumours he might miss the grass Slam later this month after winning his 14th French Open title at Roland Garros on Sunday.

“Wimbledon is not a tournament that I want to miss,” he said.

“I think nobody wants to miss Wimbledon. I love Wimbledon. If I am able to play with anti-inflammatories, yes; to play with anaesthetic injections, no. I don’t want to put myself in that position again.”

Of his Roland Garros triumph Nadal said it had been great event.

“It has been a great two weeks. I played from the beginning, improving every day,” he said.

“Finishing by playing a good final. I am super happy and can’t thank everybody enough for the support since the first day that I arrived here.”

Former British No. 1 Tim Henman believes Nadal will continue playing despite talks of retirement.

“When you have won as much as he has, you just never know what’s around the corner,” Henman Brit told Eurosport.

“I think he has been very frank, and very honest, to say that he doesn’t know if he is going to be back here. But when you see a like that – he’s 3-1 down in the second set, he wins 11 games in a row – it was just another clay-court masterclass.

“You would have thought that when he wins these big titles – don’t forget he’s won the Australian Open, the French Open, now you can talk about the Grand Slam being on – surely it is going to motivate him to keep on going.”
