Back to basics: We always want Rafa to dress up his Wimbledon appearances with a polo — defending champ and all — but we understand if he wants the pomp and circ to take a back seat to getting through two weeks of grasscourt play. So crewneck tee it is!
As the top seed, Nadal took care of American Michael Russell in a 6-4, 6-2, 6-2 win and next faces Ryan Sweeting, who needed five sets to beat Pablo Andujar 3-6, 4-6, 6-1, 7-6 (1), 6-1. (Bracket: How TSF thinks the men’ll stack up this year.)
