World No. 1 Rafael Nadal defeated Pablo Cuevas 6-2, 6-1 to give Spain an insurmountable 2-0 lead against Uruguay, with doubles still to play.
It has been a great match. I played better than the other day. It was a positive victory against an opponent I respect.
I am super happy now with this victory. We are able to win another tie.
In the doubles next is very important because we will have a chance to make it into the quarter-finals.Rafa Nadal
