Rafael Nadal reacts to beating Mikhail Kukushkin at Wimbledon

  • Wimbledon- Tuesday Schedule Nadal del Potro Zverev to play

However, he believes players need time to compose themselves between points and to mull tactics over five sets.

The 32-year-old started off his campaign with a comfortable 6-3, 6-3, 6-2 win over his Israeli opponent Dudi Sela in a one-sided opening round clash.

The U.S. Open has made a decision to introduce a shot clock this year so that the 25 seconds allowed between points is strictly enforced and Wimbledon is likely to follow suit.

"Probably I should go to the toilet".

"If you want to keep playing in a sport that you need to think, you need to play with more tactics, you want to have long and good rallies, then of course you are going the wrong way". I can't support this, no.

That may have been the Israeli's last chance to remain competitive in the match and although he would remain down just a single break, it never felt as though Nadal was under any trouble.

"I don't remember an emotional match that the total time of the match has been two hours", Nadal said.

The pressure was upped even more as Nadal had yet another break point for a 5-1 lead, but a string of unforced errors denied him the chance to serve out the match.

Helping the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club live up to its name, the stars of Wimbledon tried their hand at croquet, and quite a few of them showed some potential.

Their last meeting was in the third round of Wimbledon, four years ago, where Nadal claimed a comfortable 7-6, 6-1, 6-1, 6-1 win over the Russian. It's hard to compare the best matches of all time but, what I would say, is that the 2008 Wimbledon final had everything. I've said, if possible, I prefer another umpire on my court. "But it has to be in line with the respect towards the tradition of the game".
