Rafael Nadal sailed into the second round of the Australian Open on Monday with a comforatable 6-1 6-1 6-1 win over Dominican journeyman Victor Estrella Burgos.
Playing his first competitive match since pulling out of the ATP Tour Finals with knee trouble in November, the world number one showed no signs of early season rust as he tore through the evening match at Rod Laver Arena in one hour and 34 minutes.
The 31-year-old, who lost last year’s final in a five-set classic with long-time rival Roger Federer, brought up three match points with a huge serve and closed out the match on the first when Jeremy Lin Youth jersey

This was Nadal's first match in a while. He withdrew from the 2017 ATP Finals in London due to a right knee injury. However, despite the loss to world No.31, he remained upbeat about his physical condition, reports Xinhua news agency.
"It's not an official match but still a test for me and good practice, that's the most important thing, that's the most important thing for the whole season," the 31-year-old Spaniard said, reaffirming his need to keep practising hard to be prepared for the Australian Open. hockey jerseys cheap jerseys paypal wholesale nfl jerseys jerseys china jerseys china cheap nba jerseys
