Rafael Nadal plays best match at Wimbledon this year to down Sonego

Rafael Nadal looked shaky in his first two matches at Wimbledon but the 3rd one was superb from him as he took down Sonego 6-1 6-2 6-4.

Sonego is a fairly strong tennis player and on grass, he can be dangerous on his day. Well, that day was not today as Nadal largely cruised. It was an improved level from Nadal overall as he played the best match so far at Wimbledon. There were certain concerns with his level so far but this performance should calm fans down a bit.

Nadal opened well playing superb tennis as Sonego struggled to find any sort of rhythm. An early break was followed by another one and Nadal finished it off with 6-1. Sonego was quite bad in this one committing 9 errors to only two winners and that's not the type of tennis that wins him matches. He likes to attack and go for shots but he needs to have more winners than errors otherwise it's not happening.

The 2nd set was another one where Nadal largely dominated against the Ilitan who could not string together anything of note. Nadal did not allow him but he didn't help himself either. It was 6-2 and Sonego was 5-5 in winner and errors. The final set was one where the Italian found something good posting a superb 12-3 ratio in favour of the winners.

Nadal was still on top though with an early 4-2 lead but the match was stopped at that time to close the roof. Upon return, Sonego broke back but then Nadal did the same to close out the match 6-4.
