Nadal heads into the third round

Cilic, the 2014 US Open champion, had been expected to mount a strong challenge for the Wimbledon title after winning the grass-court warm-up at Queen's Club two weeks ago. In truth, we all want that Roger-Rafa final.

Unfortunately, it was the Slovakian who was left dodging the majestic missiles that kept raining down on his half of the court.

"It's a wonderful feeling walking out there, I try to put on a good match and try hard every time, regardless of how many times I've played at Wimbledon.

A lot of times you just have to weather the storm and play better on those big points". "I think I played much better today", Nadal said.
