  1. - - NADAL 6-3 6-2 - NADAL WINS THROUGH! The second seed wins through in incredibly comfortable fashion, taking a straight-sets victory in just 1 hour 16 minutes on Stadium 1! The Spaniard salutes the crowd after closing it out with a big first serve, and next up for him will be a quarter-final clash with David Nalbandian! He was barely tested today in truth.
