BAUTISTA AGUT 1-6 2-6 2-6 NADAL: That was straightforward. 17 forehand winners, four with the backhand from Nadal - absolutely incisive form from him. Not a bad display from Bautista Agut, but what can you do against this man?

- 
-

BAUTISTA AGUT 1-6 2-6 2-5 NADAL: No forehand errors this time from Nadal - he breaks again and he's surely about to finish this off.

-

BAUTISTA AGUT 1-6 2-6 2-4 NADAL: Third ace of the match for Rafael Nadal as he closes in on finishing this off.

-

BAUTISTA AGUT 1-6 2-6 2-3 NADAL: And then after the handful of glitchy points in the last game, Nadal focuses to break the Bautista serve.

- 

BAUTISTA AGUT 1-6 2-6 2-2 NADAL: Bautista does have some threat on show here, sending some terrific cross-court shots to test Nadal. Of course, the king of clay simply turns it up to keep his serve.

- 

BAUTISTA AGUT 1-6 2-6 2-1 NADAL: A couple of loose forehands from Nadal again as Bautista holds serve.

- 

BAUTISTA AGUT 1-6 2-6 1-1 NADAL: Bautista is working so hard against the Nadal serve, and having no luck with it whatsoever.

- 

BAUTISTA AGUT 1-6 2-6 1-0 NADAL: Bautista is not giving up quite yet, fighting back to save some more break points to get off to a good start in the third.

- 
-

BAUTISTA AGUT 1-6 2-6 NADAL: This is so brilliant to watch, unless of course you're Roberto Bautista Agut. Nadal has so much power and pace on his strikes, and his guile leaves Bautista lost. Second set to Nadal.

-

BAUTISTA AGUT 1-6 2-5 NADAL: Nadal is unstoppable, with the fortune going in his favour as well. He's about to serve for the second, and we've only been going for just over an hour.

- 
- 

BAUTISTA AGUT 1-6 2-4 NADAL: Great serving, great volleying from Nadal.

- 
- 

BAUTISTA AGUT 1-6 2-3 NADAL: A hold for Bautista, though, staying in this second set.

- 

BAUTISTA AGUT 1-6 1-3 NADAL: This is just vicious. Nadal is in his groove and it's amazing to watch.

-

BAUTISTA AGUT 1-6 1-2 NADAL: Longest game of the match so far as Bautista Agut battles to save break points. Too much to cope with the relentless Nadal pressure, though.

- 

BAUTISTA AGUT 1-6 1-1 NADAL: More blistering forehand work from Nadal to hold serve.

- 

BAUTISTA AGUT 1-6 1-0 NADAL: Bautista Agut holds to love to get his second set off to a better start.

-

BAUTISTA AGUT 1-6 NADAL: 37 minutes on the clock, and Nadal wraps up the first set. His forehand is fizzing, and although his opponent is playing reasonably, there's nothing he can do.

-

BAUTISTA AGUT 1-5 NADAL: Bautista hasn't held serve yet. He's not playing too badly, either. Just Nadal is better.

- 

BAUTISTA AGUT 1-4 NADAL: Bautista threatens yet another break of serve but Nadal hits through the danger.

-

BAUTISTA AGUT 1-3 NADAL: Second break for Nadal, who isn't making such easy work of this so far.

-

BAUTISTA AGUT 1-2 NADAL: Hmm. Errors on the Nadal forehand gives Bautista a break back.

-

BAUTISTA AGUT 0-2 NADAL: Is Rafa in the mood to serve up some more bagels? Certainly seems that way.

- 

BAUTISTA AGUT 0-1 NADAL: Rafa is up and running with a hold of serve.
