Nadal arrives in London for grasscourt swing

6:59 am on 7 June 2011

Rafa Nadal has arrived in rainy London for international tennis's grasscourt swing basking in his record-equalling sixth French Open title, still the leader of a golden generation for men's tennis.

The Spaniard's victory over great rival Roger Federer yesterday was the perfect climax to a fortnight that reinforced the view that fans have never had it so good.

The former world number four Greg Rusedski, who's now a TV commentator, says the strength at the top of the mens game is staggering, and this has been the toughest era in men's tennis to win grand slams.

Rusedski is tipping Nadal to win Wimbledon later this month.
