London, England - Two-time champion Rafael Nadal, seven- time titlist Roger Federer and Australian Open winner Stan Wawrinka posted second-round victories Thursday at Wimbledon. The second-seeded world No. 1 superstar Nadal exacted some revenge by coming back to beat Czech Lukas Rosol 4-6, 7-6 (8-6), 6-4, 6-4 on the famed Centre Court. Rosol shocked Nadal in the second round here two years ago, and Nadal was a first-round loser against Belgian Steve Darcis in the opening round last year. Rosol had a set point in the second-set tiebreak but was unable to convert, as Nadal saved it with a forehand winner and Rosol double-faulted two points later to give the Spaniard the set. Nadal ultimately completed his comeback in 2 hours, 44 minutes. The big-serving 6-foot-5 Rosol popped 17 aces, compared to 11 for Nadal, who broke his Czech counterpart three times, compared to two breaks for the loser. Nadal has now beaten Rosol twice since losing to the Czech slugger here in 2012. The mighty Spaniards other win came in Doha, Qatar, back in January. "I never play for revenge. Every match is a different match. My goal is not to beat Rosol but to play as well as I can in the tournament," Nadal said. The 14-time Grand Slam champion Nadal, who is the reigning French and U.S. Open titlist, is now 38-7 lifetime at Wimbledon, where hes a two-time winner and three-time runner-up. Up next for the 28-year-old great will be Kazakhstans Mikhail Kukushkin. The fourth-seeded former world No. 1 great Federer eased past Luxembourgs Gilles Muller 6-3, 7-5, 6-3 under the roof on Centre Court. Rain forced the closure of the roof during the second set. Federer improved to 69-8 lifetime at The Championships, where he also finished as a runner-up in 2008 in addition to those seven titles. The 17-time Grand Slam king titled on grass in Halle two weeks ago. He awaits the Marcel Granollers-Santiago Giraldo winner. The fifth-seeded Swiss star Wawrinka moved on by striking 56 winners and holding off Taiwans Yen-Hsun Lu, 7-6 (8-6), 6-3, 3-6, 7-5. Wawrinka will meet Uzbekistans Denis Istomin on Saturday. In other action involving top-10 seeds, No. 8 Milos Raonic, of Canada, reached the third round at Wimbledon for the first time by humbling American Jack Sock 6-3, 6-4, 6-4, No. 9 American John Isner erased veteran Finnish left-hander Jarkko Nieminen 7-6 (19-17), 7-6 (7-3), 7-5, and No. 10 Kei Nishikori, of Japan, erased American Denis Kudla 6-3, 6-2, 6-1. The youngest player in the mens draw, 19-year-old Aussie Nick Kyrgios, pulled off an impressive upset by coming from two-sets-to-love down to eliminate 13th-seeded Frenchman and former Wimbledon semifinalist Richard Gasquet, 3-6, 6-7 (4-7), 6-4, 7-5, 10-8. Kyrgios smacked 21 aces and saved nine match points in the remarkable victory on the No. 2 Court. The Aussie needed 3 hours, 53 minutes to advance, as Gasquet ripped 27 aces in a losing effort. In a match that was suspended because of darkness on Wednesday, 14th-seeded French star Jo-Wilfried Tsonga finished off American Sam Querrey 4-6, 7-6 (7-2), 6-7 (4-7), 6-3, 14-12. The two men returned to the court knotted at 9-9 in the final set on Thursday. Tsonga and Querrey combined for 70 aces, including 37 from the French winner, in the two-day, 3-hour, 49-minute affair. The match featured only three service breaks, with Tsonga gaining two of them. Italian Simone Bolelli took out 22nd-seeded German Philipp Kohlschreiber 4-6, 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 7-5, while 23rd-seeded Spaniard Tommy Robredo bested Frances Adrian Mannarino 6-4, 6-1, 7-6 (7-5) and Czech Jiri Vesely upended 24th-seeded Frenchman Gael Monfils 7-6 (7-3), 6-3, 6-7 (1-7), 6-7 (3-7), 6-4. Also on Day 4, Kukushkin drubbed Canadian Frank Dancevic 6-3, 6-3, 6-2, Istomin defeated German Julian Reister, 7-6 (9-7), 6-4, 6-4, and Polands Lukasz Kubot overcame Serbian Dusan Lajovic 6-7 (4-7), 7-6 (7-4), 6-3, 7-6 (7-3). Kubot was a surprise Wimbledon quarterfinalist last year. Rain forced the suspension or postponement of three matches, as 15th-seeded 2013 semifinalist Jerzy Janowicz was leading former world No. 1 and former Wimbledon champ Lleyton Hewitt 7-5, 4-4, 19th-seeded Feliciano Lopez never took to the court against Croat Ante Pavic, and 30th-seeded Spaniard Marcel Granollers was ahead of Colombian Santiago Giraldo 6-4, 6-7 (2-7), 6-1, 1-6, 2-1 when play was called for the day. Lopez titled on grass in Eastbourne last week and was a runner-up on grass the week before at Londons Queens Club. The third round will commence Friday, including matches for top-seeded former champion Novak Djokovic and third-seeded reigning champ Andy Murray. Last years runner-up to Murray, Djokovic, will meet Frances Gilles Simon, while Murray will take on last weeks grass-court champion in The Netherlands, 27th- seeded Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut. Also seeing third-round action will be sixth-seeded 2010 Wimbledon runner-up Tomas Berdych, 11th-seeded recent Queens Club champ Grigor Dimitrov and the former Aussie Open runner-up Tsonga.
