Rafael Nadal has withdrawn from the Aegon Championships on doctors' advice in order to rest before Wimbledon.

"It's really incredible. To win La Decima is very, very special", said Nadal. Thank you to the organisers, the other players, to all the people that make this tournament possible.

As one of the major lead-in tournaments to Wimbledon, the field remains an exceptional one led by the World No.1 and defending champion Andy Murray, the reigning US Open champion Stan Wawrinka, 2014 victor Grigor Dimitrov, and last year's runner-up Milos Raonic.

Spain's Rafael Nadal made history by winning a record 10th French Open title with victory over Stan Wawrinka in the Paris final.

Leading by a set and a break, Nadal faced four break points in one game.

The integrity of Queen's remains intact however, with world No. 1 Andy Murray committed to defending his title.

With the win, Nadal extended his head-to-head lead over Wawrinka to a stellar 16-3, and improves to a flawless 10-0 in French finals.

Consumers are urged to conserve electricity especially during the late afternoon when air conditioners typically are at peak use. Officials said during times of high temperatures, demand on the power grid can be strained, as air conditioner use increases.

Wawrinka, bidding for a fourth Grand Slam title, hailed Nadal as an opponent and sportsman. "I was hoping he was going to dominate the claycourt season like the olden days".

Nadal's compatriot Tommy Robredo seemed to suggest that the King of Clay's Grand Slam total could have been even greater, tweeting: "What if we would have 2 Grand Slams on clay?" The Spaniard said he's "excited" about Wimbledon and "likes playing on grass", but he worries about the stability of his knee and his fitness after French Open play.

"If you're not completely free. you don't want him to take the lead and play even more freely", said Wawrinka, who became US Open champion past year. Plus, Nadal had lost three Grand Slam finals in a row to Djokovic, at Wimbledon in the U.S. Open in 2011, then the Australian Open in 2012.

Although Nadal has a 15-3 win against Wawrinka and blazed his way through to the finals in the last two weeks, they were still some doubts about his ability before the final.

"The nerves, the adrenaline that I feel when I play in this court is impossible to compare".

The Swiss' sole French Open title came in 2009, when Nadal was knocked out early by Robin Soderling.
