World no. 2 and third seed Rafael Nadal will kick off his campaign in a few hours from now as he takes on Japan's Yuichi Sugita in the first round of the Wimbledon Championships in London.

Nadal, who is fresh off a historic 12th French Open title, will hope to get off to a good start on a surface where he hasn't looked too comfortable over the past few years.

Sugita, on the other hand, has had a poor year so far and is ranked as low as 274 in the world.

Nadal has an extremely tough road ahead of him, with the likes of Nick Kyrgios and Marin Cilic potentially in his path early on. In fact, the enigmatic Aussie awaits him in the second round itself, if he wins his first round encounter against fellow Australian Jordan Thompson.

This will be the first encounter between Nadal and Sugita as the two players have never faced off before.
