Rafael Nadal heads into day four at Wimbledon 2014 hoping to get revenge against Lukas Rusol.
Nadal lost to the Czech in five sets at the same stage in tournament back in 2012. That defeat was then matched a year later when Nadal lost to Steve Darcis in the first round in 2013.
The Spaniard's coach Toni Nadal said the world No1 is "unfazed" by the prospect of meeting Rusol once again on grass. Nadal beat Martin Klizan in four sets on Tuesday in the first round and has won the Wimbledon title twice, in 2008 and 2010.
Elsewhere, seven-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer is set to play Gilles Muller of Luxembourg after beating Italian Paolo Lorenzi in the first round.
British spectators' eyes will be on 22-year-old Heather Watson from Guernsey, who is up against ninth seed Angelique Kerber.
Andy Murray's mother Judy has backed Watson to continue her brilliant 2014 with a first career victory against one of the world's top 10 players.
