Rafael Nadal advances to quarterfinals of China Open

08 October 2017

Rafael Nadal advanced to the final eight at the China Open in Beijing on Thursday, defeating Karen Khachanov of Russian Federation 6-3, 6-3.

Dimitrov hit a backhand crosscourt victor to take the second set on Nadal's serve in the 10th game.

The top-seeded Spaniard eased to his 59th victory of the year, breaking sixth seed Isner at 5-4 and holding his nerve to sweep a second-set tiebreak.

Despite his advancing years Nadal is enjoying a stellar season following a catalogue of injuries in previous seasons, winning five titles including the US Open and French Open.

The official said that it is going to be short term pain to tax payers and the State but it will be a big gain in the long term. However, the fitment committee will henceforth decide rates based on a concept paper, and not on an ad-hoc basis.

Dimitrov clawed his way back into the match after going a set down but was broken three times in the decider as Nadal upped his level when it mattered most.

"It was a tough match, he's one of the best players in the world right now", Kyrgios said of his vanquished opponent, ranked four in the world.

Nadal will next face John Isner. That's important for me.

"He is one of the best competitors, I like to be around him". "I played a great first set, in my opinion".

Second-seed Alexander Zverev moved past Fabio Fognini 6-4, 6-2 on Thursday to set up a quarterfinal match with Russia's Andrey Rublev. "It's never easy. I need to, right now, just stay positive and take the positives out of it". So many times I was close or a couple of times I was cramping. "I played very well, changing good directions, playing very focus all the time", said the 2005 China Open victor, "It is an important victory for me, against a player that arrived here so well, winning two great matches".

Nevertheless, the match will be mostly remembered for a point in the second set tie-break.

Nadal hit a delicate backhand lob over the American, with the ball satisfyingly dropping just inside the baseline.
