Nadal wins in straight sets to reach Aussie Open third round

Rafael Nadal says he definitely felt he had improved after beating American Michael Mmoh at the Australian Open.

Nadal came into the Australian Open with a back injury, meaning he had no competitive matches until the first round.

He cruised through that one, though, and he says he has gone up a gear again in round two.

“I always try to be better – sometimes it happens and sometimes not,” Nadal said on court after his 6-1 6-4 6-2 win. “It’s a positive feeling winning in straight sets.

“I wish Michael all the very best for the rest of the season. I’ll focus on what’s coming.

“I had heard about Michael. Yesterday I watched some videos of him to learn a little more about him.”

Rafael Nadal will face British number two Cameron Norrie in round three.
