ATP Beijing: Rafa Nadal takes down Karen Khachanov

Rafael Nadal

Playing in his first tournament since his victory at last month's U.S. Open, Nadal rolled to a 6-3, 6-3 victory over Karen Khachanov of Russian Federation. But still I didn't have the control of the match for nearly all the time. John Isner is a player that plays using momentum and at the moment, it is behind him.

The 16-time Grand Slam champion Nadal saw off the young Russian Karen Khachanov 6-3, 6-3 to set up a clash with Isner in Beijing.

Like Nadal, Zverev is bidding for his sixth title of the year.

Nadal needed all his experience to keep Pouille at bay in the decider and the match looked to be heading for another tiebreak before he pounced to break Pouille's serve for the first time to go 6-5 up.

"He played so aggressive, having a lot of success, hitting a lot of winners, returning very well".

But he was always in control against Khachanov, 21, breaking him in the fourth game of the first set on the way to a routine victory.

Juan Martin del Potro stormed into round two with a 7-6 (4) 6-4 win over Uruguay's Pablo Cuevas and will face third seed Grigor Dimitrov, who battled past Bosnian Damir Dzumhur 6-1 3-6 6-3.

Cirstea, ranked 44th in the world, stunned Czech Pliskova 6-1, 7-5 to reach the last eight.

World number one Garbine Muguruza and reigning champion Agnieszka Radwanska are both out, leaving world number two Halep as the favourite in the Chinese capital. The U.S. Open quarterfinalist continued his good run to end the season by beating seventh-seed Tomas Berdych 1-6, 6-4, 6-1. The Spaniard is coming off a big win in the US Open and he is full of confidence playing on the hard court like he will be in this game.

What's Nadal's story of the China Open so far?
