LONDON (AP) Two-time Wimbledon champion Rafael Nadal was made to work hard for his opening-round win at Wimbledon on Tuesday, rallying from one set down before beating hard-hitting Martin Klizan of Slovakia.

The top-ranked Nadal battled for nearly three hours to erase memories of his loss in the first round last year, prevailing 4-6, 6-3, 6-3, 6-3.

The 14-time Grand Slam champion, who won his ninth French Open title earlier this month, will next face Lukas Rosol, who beat him here two years ago in the second round.
