PHOTOS: Rafael Nadal into Australian Open fourth round

World No. 3 Rafael Nadal powered into the fourth round of the 2015 Australian Open with a 6-1, 6-0, 7-5 victory over Dudi Sela at Melbourne Park. He will next meet South African 14th seed Kevin Anderson.

After the match, Rafa said:  “I started playing well, not many mistakes in the first two set. In general I think I was playing much better than the day. In the third, he had some chances, seriously, he is a player than can play crazy, a good backhand, and I was lucky at the end of that third set.” Asked if he did anything differently to recover for this match, Nadal says: “Sleep.” Jim Courier responds by asking whether the Spaniard is a vampire. Could this be the biggest revelation in sporting history? Well… “I don’t like to sleep a lot. I feel that when I’m sleeping I’m losing time.” … “I need to rest, have practice tomorrow. Kevin Anderson is a big player, a big serve, very dangerous and he will be a very difficult opponent for me.” (via BBC)
