Wimbledon: Nadal def Bellucci

12/29/2013Rafaholics ™



Former champion Rafael Nadal survived an early scare to kick off his bid for a third Wimbledon title with a 7-6 (7/0), 6-2, 6-3 victory over Brazil's Thomaz Bellucci in the first round on Tuesday.
Nadal, the winner in 2008 and 2010, allowed world number 80 Bellucci to race into a 4-0 lead in the first set on Centre Court.
Winning the opening set in a tie-break seemed to break Bellucci's resolve and, with normal service restored, Nadal powered through the second set in typically aggressive fashion.



"It's always tough to make the change from clay to grass, especially when over the last couple of months I played almost every match on tour. Physically you start having some troubles," Nadal said.
"He started well, with some good serves, and after that I had more mistakes than usual and I was very lucky to come back from 4-0.
""But I'm very happy to be back on probably the best court in the world and winning in three sets is good for me. Every time I have the chance to play here I try to enjoy it."
