World No. 1 Rafael Nadal will play Dustin Brown in the second round in Halle, Germany. Rafa and his compatriot Dustin have never played head to head before.
Rafa: “Brown is a player who plays with a lot of inspiration. He’s very dangerous. He can play so aggressively. He’s not a player who’s going to give me rhythm on the baseline. It’s going to be a big challenge for me… Grass is always a bit of a lottery. On grass you need to be at 100 per cent because movement is important here, especially for a player like me. I’m not a player who’s going to serve 35 aces per match.” (via ATP)
