Rafael Nadal was back to his commanding best at the Caja Magica as he dropped just four games en route to a demolition of Sergiy Stakhovsky 60 60 64. The world No. 2 gave Spain a 2-0 lead over Ukraine after Fernando Verdasco had defeated Alexandr Dolgopolov in the opening rubber of the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group play-off in Madrid.

In a match the visitors were desperate to win to give any hope of an upset at the Caja Magica, Dolgopolov took the opening set but Verdasco, playing Davis Cup for the first time since 2011, fought back to win 36 64 64 62 In two hours and 32 minutes.
