NADAL SAKES OFF ROUGH START;ADVANCES TO ROUND 4 AT WIMBLEDON

#1 tennis player in the world Rafael Nadal shook off a slow start to cruise to a victory over #63 ” Mikhail Kukushkin 6-7(4),6-1,6-1,6-1 on Saturday to advance the 4th round at Wimbledon. Nadal lost the first set but then shook off the scary start and blew through the next three winning by a combined total of 18-3.”Every match is so difficult here. Especially when you play against players that really decide to play every shot (at) full power. I played a bad game in the 4-4 and I lost the first set. I think until that moment I was playing better than him, but didn’t have my chances on the return because he was serving well. (I am) very happy. It is a very important victory for me. … I finished the match playing at a very high level.” The shaky starts are concerning as this is the third straight match Nadal has dropped set#1, Nadal was destroyed in the tiebreaker only scoring 4 times but against the best player in the world Kukushkin dropped the next three sets consecutively: 6-1, 6-1, 6-1.
