Rafael Nadal is bidding for a third Wimbledon title

Rafael Nadal overcame a slow start to ease past world No 274 Yuichi Sugita and set up a second-round grudge match against Nick Kyrgios at Wimbledon.

The two-time champion grew in confidence on Court One as he defeated the 30-year-old Japanese player 6-3 6-1 6-3.

Nadal, bidding for his first title at the All England Club since 2010, is the world No 2 but seeded third – behind Roger Federer – because of Wimbledon’s seedings formula which takes into account grass-court form.
