The Spaniard warmed up for his maiden Wimbledon triumph last summer by beating Novak Djokovic in the final, and now joins the line-up for the 2009 event alongside Britain’s Andy Murray.
“It is nice to come back to a place where you are the last champion,” Nadal told aegonchampionships.com.
“The AEGON Championships and Wimbledon are both very traditional tournaments and I love to play these two tournaments. To arrive as the last champion is going to be a really nice experience.
“You feel like you are in a club, a real tennis club, so that always is really nice.
“Playing (the AEGON Championships) means that you are already in London, the courts are in perfect condition like at Wimbledon and so it is always a pleasure to play there.
“The atmosphere is always really good and the crowd has always been really nice with me.”
