Rafael Nadal had an enormous level and did not give Michael Mmoh options. He was beaten 6-1, 6-4 and 6-2 of the world number 2 against the North American to get into the next instance of the first Grand Slam of the season, where his rival will be the British Cameron Norrie.
On from the first moment, the Spaniard never took his foot off the accelerator. He broke twice to close the first set 6-1.
In the second set, Mmoh increased the intensity and displayed good tennis to play him, at times, as equals to the manacorí. When he served 5-4 to take over the set, Nadal had a small cross with a lady who was present in the stadium, although he did not pass to greater and the winner of 20 Grand Slam tournaments closed the game.
The broad dominance of the European was present again in the final part of the game. Mmoh lost the serve twice in a row and his opponent did not miss the chance to win the game and settle in the third round of the Australian Open.
In another crossing, Daniil Medvedev was a tractor and overwhelmed Roberto Carballés Baena 6-2, 7-5 and 6-1. The Russian already has a rival in the next phase: Serbian Filip Krajinovic.
