PHOTOS: Rafael Nadal into Rome last 8

Rafael Nadal is through to the quarters of the Internazionali BNL d’Italia in Rome after a 6-4, 6-4 win over John Isner. The match lasted 79 minutes. Our Champ did not face a single break point and won 90 percent of his first-service points.

After the match, Rafa said: “I was almost perfect. It was a good match, I’m satisfied.”
