Rafael Nadal will take aim at relieving Roger Federer of his Wimbledon title after warning the world number one that he is playing the best tennis of his career.
Nadal emulated Bjorn Borg by winning three successive French Open titles with his 6-3, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 win over Federer at Roland Garros on Sunday, ending for yet another year the Swiss star's dreams of becoming just the third man to hold all four Grand Slam crowns at the same time.
"This was my best Roland Garros," said the Spaniard, who has never been beaten in 21 matches during his three visits to the French capital.
"I am playing my best tennis. I am a more complete player than I was last year. I come into the net more and have better chances than before.
"My backhand has improved, I'm more confident on my forehand. This year, I have won a lot of matches playing well. Last year I won a lot of matches without playing well."
Despite his confidence in his own form, Nadal refuses to get carried away by his chances at Wimbledon where Federer has won for the last four years.
