World No 3 keen to play the Spaniard again.
Britain’s Andy Murray has said that he cannot wait for the return to action of former world No 1 Rafael Nadal.
The Spaniard has been out of action since Wimbledon last summer due to a longstanding knee problem, although the clay-court specialist is expected to return later this month.
And the Scot is looking forward to taking on his old rival once again.
“He’s one of the greatest players that’s ever played the sport,” Murray said at Queen’s Club.

Who’s up for strawberries and cream?
“I think when he’s out, you’re obviously going to miss something, his rivalry. (Along) With Roger it’s been one of the best our sport’s ever had. It’ll be great when he comes back I hope it doesn’t take him too long to get back to playing his best tennis because I think before he got injured, I think tennis has been in a great spot.
“There’s been a lot of great matches. The players right at the top of the game – Roger and Rafa – two of the best players ever. Novak (Djokovic) has had an incredible few years. So, if we can get Rafa back and hopefully he gets back to his best game as soon as possible, it’s good for tennis.”
