PHOTOS: Rafael Nadal beats Pablo Cerreno Busta to reach Australian Open fourth round

World No. 1 Rafael Nadal has made easy work of fellow Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta, winning 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 to advance to the fourth round of the Australian Open.

“It was my best match of the tournament without a doubt,” said Rafa, who hit 42 winners and made just seven unforced errors.

“When the conditions are warmer the ball bounces higher and flies through the air. That helps my game.

“I did very well with my serves and started to hit some forehands down the line. That is key for me.”

The 19-time Grand Slam champion could face Australian Nick Kyrgios in the last 16.
