Nadal secures another easy Wimbledon win

RAFAEL Nadal easily accounted for American Donald Young to secure another impressive Wimbledon win.

The two-time champion, who is yet to drop a set at this tournament, won 6-4 6-2 7-5 in the second round.

Despite a tight third set, Nadal was rarely troubled in the match with Young opting to slug out from the back of the court against of the game's best baseliners.

Nadal's victory sets up a third round tie with Russian Karen Khachanov.

The 21-year-old is widely touted as a future grand slam winner but Nadal issued a warning of sorts to the young star.

"It might look easy at this moment in our sport, because there are three players that won 18, 15, and 12," he said, referring to Roger Federer, himself and Novak Djokovic.

"But it not a very long time ago when (Pete) Sampras had 14, and it looked like nobody was going to have the chance to increase that number," Nadal added.

"Karen is a great player, he has chances to win a lot. But then there are other good players out there."

Fresh from winning his 10th French Open last month Nadal, who is listed among the favourites to win Wimbledon, was party to one of championships weirdest moments after his second round victory.

As the Spaniard was leaving centre court a fan asked him to sign his prosthetic leg - a request he politely agreed to.
