Rafael Nadal is in second-round action at the Mexican Open as he aims to reach the last eight in Acapulco. And he comes up against NextGen star Miomir Kecmanovic, who beat Alex de Minaur in the first round.
Conditions in Mexico present a tricky test for players with heat and high humidity even in the late evening sessions and Nadal was delighted to get through.
“The most important thing when you have not competed for a while is to win, I needed a match like today to get in rhythm and gain some confidence,” he said.
“It was an awkward first round game. I had not competed for a while and the temperature change is drastic enough but I am happy with the victory.”
The winner of this match will play South Korea’s Soonwoo Kwon on Thursday.

Rafael Nadal’s clash with Miomir Kecmanovic will get underway following the conclusion of Grigor Dimitrov’s clash with Adrian Mannarino.
