The Spanish tennis player Rafa Nadal is already in the third round of Roland Garros, last ‘Grand Slam’ of this season, after submitting this Wednesday without concessions to the American Mackenzie McDonald (6-1, 6-0, 6-3).
After his solid debut against Belarusian Egar Gerasimov (6-4, 6-4, 6-2), Nadal signed a I find it even more placid against number 211 in the ATP world rankings, who could do almost nothing in the face of the enormous superiority of his rival.
After the initial 1-1, the Spaniard put the direct towards victory with a streak of 11 games in a row topped with a ‘donut’ in the second set. Nadal took advantage of seven of the eight ‘break’ balls he had and did not concede a single one to his troubled opponent throughout the match.
In the last set, and already with a service break in favor (3-1), Nadal gave some truce and allowed McDonald to add two more games, who could make up the result a bit, but do not avoid elimination after one hour and 40 minutes of the match.
After two resounding victories in the French capital, the most successful tennis player in Paris will seek the round of 16 against the winner of the duel between the Japanese Kei Nishikori and the Italian Stefano Travaglia, which will also be decided this Wednesday.
