Australian Open: Nadal 3-0 Delbonis

Rafael Nadal has muscled his way into the third round of the Australian Open, with a straight-sets victory over Argentina’s Federico Delbonis.

The Spaniard, who is hunting for a second Australian Open title, dispatched Delbonis 6-3 in the opening set, but passed up a good few chances for an early finish, as the second went into a tie-break. Yet the 19-times Grand Slam champion took the upper hand and won it 7-4.

Nadal then capped off his relentless display with a 6-1 thrashing of the Argentine in the third, to set up a 3rd round meeting with compatriot Pablo Carreno Busta.
