NADAL UNTROUBLED IN OPENER

World No. 1 Rafael Nadal cruised into the Shanghai Rolex Masters third round on Wednesday evening with a 6-3, 6-2 victory over Alexandr Dolgopolov. The Spaniard was playing his first match since returning to the top of the Emirates ATP Rankings.

The 27-year-old Nadal won 77 per cent of his service points, not facing a break point, and broke Dolgopolov three times to advance in 59 minutes. The Spaniard had earlier sat courtside to watch a few games of Roger Federer’s opening match.
"The court is fast, faster than the previous years," said Nadal. "I think I played a good match. To win against Dolgopolov the way I did is because I did a lot of things well. The serve worked great. Something that didn't happen last week. That's a very important thing."

Nadal is chasing his 11th tour-level title of a remarkable season, which has seen him win Roland Garros and the US Open. He is attempting to make history by winning his sixth ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title of the season.
