Madrid Open LIVE: Rafael Nadal goes past Miomir Kecmanovic in straight sets to enter third round of Madrid Open

The World No. 4 played as if he had never been away, hitting with his explosive power as he recovered from failing to serve out the match at 6-5 in the second set to advance after one hour and 55 minutes.

He allowed Kecmanovic to win only one game in the first set as he dominated the set completely without even facing even a single break point as he closed out the set 6-1. In the second set, Kecmanovic won the first game before play was halted due to rain.

It resumed shortly after when the roof was closed on Manolo Santana Stadium. The interruption did little to halt Nadal’s rhythm, though, as he continued to play with relentless intensity. Nadal established further control when he broke to lead 6-5 in the second set, but failed to serve out the match

We had to put all circumstances together to analyse every single comeback, and today has been a very important match for me, playing at home on clay against a player that has been playing well for the past couple of months,” Nadal said in his post-match press conference.

He will now face the winner between David Goffin and Botic van de Zandschulp in his next round.
