January 17, 2018 4:30 pm

Top seed Rafael Nadal is into the third round with a straight-sets victory 6-3 6-4 7-6 over Argentina’s Leonardo Mayer in the Australian Open.

Nadal says it is always a tough match going up against world number 52 – Mayer.

“For me, he’s always a tough opponent. Leonardo is a player with a big potential and he hits the ball so strong. Let’s see the last couple of games he’s a very dangerous opponent and I wish him all the best for the rest of the season.”
