Rafael Nadal blazes past Denis Istomin at Roland Garros

[ Source: ] - June 01, 2012

Rafael Nadal is comfortably though to the third roundRafael Nadal took a step closer to an historic seventh French Open title with a dominant victory over Denis Istomin.

The defending champion, who is bidding to become the first man to win seven titles at Roland Garros, underlined his status as red-hot favourite in Paris with an impressive 6-2 6-2 6-0 victory.

Despite some big hitting from Istomin, Nadal grabbed an early lead and never looked back as he strolled towards victory. A second break of serve was enough as the Spaniard coolly served out for the opening set.

Istomin had his chances - earning a break point after sending a winner flashing past Nadal, having sent the Spaniard scurrying backwards to retrieve a lob, but ultimately could not convert his chances.

As is so often the way with Nadal, it proved to be costly. Having seen a break point pass him by, Istomin swiftly found himself a break down as Nadal hit back with his customary ferocity.
