(AFP) – World number two Rafael Nadal cruised into the third round at Indian Wells on Sunday night.
Rafa converted five of his six break chances against Jared Donaldson and never faced a break point himself.
Our champ next faces Diego Schwartzman, who beat Spain’s Roberto Carballes, 6-3, 6-1. Rafa is 6-0 against the Argentine.
“Today was a very positive step for me, and the next one is going to be against a player that we know each other very well — we practiced a lot of times, and we played some tough matches,” Rafa said.
“It’s going to be a tough one against Diego,” he added, calling Schwartzman “one of the best talents of the sport today.”
