EFEMelbourne, Australia

Rafael Nadal on Sunday easily moved into the Australian Open quarterfinals after a tough first set against Adrian Mannarino to face off against Denis Shapovalov, who upset Alexander Zverev.

The Spaniard had to fend off the only break point carved out in the first half and then fight through a marathon first-set tiebreaker, but then cruised to a 7-6 (16-14), 6-2, 6-2.EFE
