Rafael Nadal vs Dustin Brown | Thursday 2 July, 2015 | Wimbledon | 13.00
Following a solid start to his grass court campaign, two-time champion Rafael Nadal will further his campaign with a second round match-up against German Dustin Brown.
Nadal will be looking to bounce back after his disappointing loss to Novak Djokovic in the 2015 Roland Garros quarter final clash. He looks poised to right his wrongs after sealing a straight-set 6-4, 6-2, 6-4 victory over Thomaz Bellucci in the first round clash.
The Spaniard is aware of the threat posed by Brown and is likely to be cautious in his approach against the German. The two have faced each other only once in Halle where Brown managed to come out victorious by registering a straight-sets victory.
“It is difficult to think about how the match going to be; he’s not a usual player. Anything can happen. He beat me last year in Halle,” Nadal said of his opponent.
“It is little bit different, the surface and everything. He’s a tough player. Probably he will come with good confidence. I’m going to try to be ready for it”
Dustin Brown defeated Yen-Hsun Lu in four sets after dropping the first set. He won the match 3-6, 6-3, 7-5, 6-4 to reach the second round for the second time in his career.
Brown is not putting too much weight on his previous victory over the ex-world number one. The 30-year-old, ranked No. 102 in the world, is looking to match his best grand slam showing by making the third round.
“Obviously it’s going to be a great match. I’m very happy that I get to play him again. I don’t worry too much about last year’s match because I probably played the match of my life there,” Brown said.
