Rafa on playing Lorenzo:

“He’s a player with a very positive attitude, good serve, great forehand. Third round match against a difficult player. The only thing that I can expect is a difficult match. I need to play well. That’s the only way to have chances to keep going. I know him. I like the way he plays. He’s a very dangerous opponent.”

The Italian player has made the third round at all three majors this season. He reached the fourth round at the All-England Club last summer and so far this fortnight he has taken out grass-court specialist Denis Kudla in five sets and Hugo Gaston in straights. He owns a 3-13 record against Top 10 opponents. 

Our champ is looking for a record-extending 23rd Grand Slam title, and third Wimbledon trophy.
