Rafa Nadal secured a comfortable passage through his 1st Round match against Thomaz Bellucci at Wimbledon, winning in straight sets 6-4, 6-2, 6-4.
Nadal will face Dustin Brown in the next round and said he was pleased with his opening match in London.
“It was a solid win,” he said. “Everything was very positive, except for a few plays on ‘break points’ against. There were some very good backhands and I was feeling good playing down the right. It is very emotional to come back here to Wimbledon and it was very good to play with heat. It’s a good start but I’m only in the second round.”
He added: “Brown will be a tough opponent in the next round. Here it’s hot, but in Australia it’s even hotter. It’s nice when you play in this heat at Wimbledon, which is one of the most beautiful places in the world.”
