Rafael Nadal scored a 6-2 6-2 win over Nikolay Davydenko to advance to the third round at the Madrid Open 2012.
Nadal looked totally at home and confortable playing on the new blue clay court at the Caja Magica. He broke early and never looked back. His movement was slick and assured, allowing him to hit with authority on both wings.
After winning the opening set with any problems he got a break at the start of the second.
Davydenko never had any chance against the former world number 1, who sealed the win with a booming forehand.
"I played as well as I can," said Nadal. "I played a very good match. I think that I played a really good match as it was my first match here in these circumstances. I am very happy about my result, about the way that I played."
