Wimbledon 2015: Second day story

Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal started their Wimbledon campaign with a positive start on the second day of the tournament.


World No. 2 Roger Federer began his run to claim eighth Wimbledon title with a 6-1, 6-3, 6-3 win over Damir Dzumhur. He started aggressively and won 85 % on his first serve.

Now, he will meet American Sam Querrey in the second round. The American beat Igor Sijsling 7-5, 6-3, 6-4.


Third seeded, Andy Murray, won his first round match 6-4 7-6 (7-3) 6-4 in two hours and 12 minutes on Centre Court against Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan in south west London. He will face Dutchman R. Haase in the second round of Wimbledon.

Murray told BBC Sport, “It was a tough match. I made it hard for myself in the second set.”
For me, it’s nice,” Murray said of the British success. “I know all of them fairly well.
“I’ve obviously spent a lot of time training with James, really more the last 12, 18 months. Aljaz I don’t know so well. Heather obviously had a good win today, too. Liam’s a nice guy. He’s good fun to be around.”
“It’s good for British tennis. The more wins and more players we can have in these events, it makes a difference,” he also added.

nadalTwo times champion Rafael Nadal was in imperious form as he dispatched Thomaz Bellucci 6-4, 6-2, 6-4 in 2 hours and 11 minutes. This is Brazilian’s fifth straight loss to Nadal in straight sets. Nadal hit only one ace and made five double faults during his first round match.

Spaniard said after the match that, “It was a very positive victory.”
“Straight sets, no bad feelings, good backhands. The forehand needs to be a bit more aggressive” he also added.
Nadal will face Dustin Brown in the second round on Thursday. The German beat Taiwanese player Lu 3-6, 6-3, 7-5, 6-4 to reach round two.
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga defeated Gilles Muller 7-6 (8), 6-7 (3), 6-4, 3-6, 6-2. His compatriot Gael Monfils was in complete control in his first round match 6-4, 6-4, 7-5 win over Pablo Carreno Busta.
