Wimbledon: Rafael Nadal Breaks Late, Wins First Set 6-4

After staying on serve with eight routine games, this match broke open in the ninth game, as Rafael Nadal broke a discouraged Murray for 5-4.

Murray hasn’t had any looks so far on Nadal’s serve, which is not as much because Nadal is serving bombs as it is that’ he’s consistently getting first strike in the rallies after some uninspired Murray returns.
