Rafael Nadal admits that his draw for Wimbledon is tough, but is not thinking too far ahead.

World number five Rafael Nadal has admitted that he must be at his best at Wimbledon if he is to emerge victorious from his tough draw.

Nadal dropped to fifth in the world following his French Open win, which means that he could have to face the top three of Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic.

The Spaniard, however, said that he is only thinking of one match at a time, which for him is an opening round clash with Steve Darcis.

"The draw is hard, but I have to try and play as well as I can from the beginning," he told Sky Sports News. "We'll see what's going on.

"I'll try. I know here at Wimbledon is a very special tournament. All the matches are very difficult and close on this surface.

"Every match will be tough. My draw is tough yes, but I'm not looking past my first round today."

The tournament begins on Monday morning.
