Rafael Nadal will start his Wimbledon challenge on Monday determined to erase the memory of his shock second-round defeat last year to a player ranked 100 in the world.

The French Open champion has been handed the toughest of draws by the All England Club and will in all likelihood have to beat Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic to win his third Wimbledon title.

Nadal said: “It is always a pleasure to play on grass. I always love it. I’m happy to be back playing here.”
