Wilander does think, however, that Carlos Alcaraz will pose a threat to Nadal’s chances of Grand Slam glory.
The 19-year-old has been in stunning form of late and, at the start of the month, beat Alexander Zverev to win the Madrid Open.
And Wilander thinks he’s ready to make a big impact in France, saying: “I never saw someone with his way of acting and his freshness.
“He is relaxed on court, the opposite feeling when you see Nadal on court, he never seems to be relaxed and that he has the best attitude I have ever seen.
“I love how he acts, it is very important for tennis that there is a player who seems to be enjoying himself so much, who likes to compete so much and who hates losing.
