Yesterday, the first leg of men's second round session was set to be played at Wimbledon. Andy Murray, the defending champion and the current world no. 1 shared the highlights with Rafael Nadal, two times former champion and the world no. 1. Since the draw was out for scrutiny there've been plenty of debates around their possible collision in the semis of the contest and the implications it might have. With Nadal closing the gap really fast, Murray must hold on tight if he wants to remain on the no.

1 spot after Wimbledon. They made no wrongs steps in booking themselves a slot in the third round. Moreover, they are yet to drop a set at this Championships.

Andy Murray solved Dustin Brown puzzle in no time

The second round session had Andy Murray in the company of a strange character, an entertainer whose primary goal is to enjoy tennis rather than winning matches. With that in mind, it was no wonder that Murray dispatched Dustin Brown (97 ATP) in straight sets. Even so, Murray's opponent delivered some unique samples of his unmistakable tennis.

In the end, it was 6-3 6-2 6-2 for the top seed who founds himself five clicks away from being successful once more at Wimbledon. His next opponent is Fabio Fognini (29 ATP). The Italian is the 28th seed of men's contest and it's gonna be the first genuine test for Murray. Their head to head status is on a balance (3-3) though Fognini won their last meeting not that long ago. It was in the early stages of Masters 1000 in Rome where the home crowd favorite dispatched the world no. 1 in straight sets. This upcoming clash is the seventh and also the first one on a grass court.

Rafael Nadal eases past Donald Young

Despite not having any warm-up heading to Wimbledon, Rafael Nadal has already settled in. His game is yet to suffer any compression and it seems that he is really enjoying this new challenge. Last year, he was forced to skip Wimbledon due to a wrist injury so what better way to compensate that absence than to make another dream run one year later. The unseeded American Donald Young (43 ATP) had no change against the Iberian storm. It was 6-4 6-2 7-5 for Nadal who will face Karen Khachanov(34 ATP) in the next phase.

The 21-year-old Russian is one of those younger players whose primary attribute is a big serve. But having a big powerful hand is sometimes enough for a grass-court encounter.For Rafael Nadal, the last couple of years has been cruel when Wimbledon stood on the line. Last time he reached a final was in 2011. Since then he never got further than the fourth round.
