Rafael Nadal v Thomaz Bellucci Live
An intriguing match is set to take place in the opening round of the 2015 Wimbledon Championships as the 10th seeded Spaniard Rafael Nadal will meet the Brazilian Thomaz Bellucci, on Tuesday afternoon.
The overall season for the Spaniard has been a bit disappointing one. Owing to his poor form, he has slipped down to 10th place in the world. Moreover, he has won just two titles this season and has a track record of 33-11.
He is coming in this tournament from a really unexpected exit from the Aegon Championships, where he was routed in the first round by Alexandr Dolgopolov in three sets. However, prior to that, he did win the Mercedes Cup to get some traction on grass.
Bellucci’s season on the other hand has been a rocky one. He hasn’t been that consistent with his form and has won only one title – the Geneva Open, where he overcame Joao Sousa in the final.
This will be the fifth time that the two players will collide on the tour. Nadal currently leads the tally with 4-0 and last defeated the Brazilian in ATP Rio earlier this year. Moreover, he has won against Bellucci in 2012 Wimbledon.
For this match, Nadal is certainly the favorite one and he should be able to reach the next round.
