The defending champ looks good.

Not bad from Kei either.

Decent, solid performance by Rafa. Did what ne needed to do.

Wimbledon R1: Nadal def Nishikori 6-2 6-4 6-4

Nice first match from Rafa, encouraging signs after the limp exit to Queens. He looks fit, strong and motivated here and at home on grass. Nishikori had some game but Rafa too good with some great serving at times. Onwards!

14.

Nadal will be very tough to beat here. Full of convidence and 100% fit.

He is the favorite for the title IMO.

Re: Nadal def. Nishikori 6-2, 6-4, 6-4

He did a decent job flattening out his strokes, nice seeing him try to evolve (although some attempts to go in were )

not really on topic or anything, but if Nadal hit his forehand with an eastern grip, how strong do you guys reckon his shots would be? They were very few and far between, but some of his shots today were rockets!

One-handed backhandGA!
