• Nadal cruises into Vina del Mar title match

    Nadal cruises into Vina del Mar title match Rafael Nadal makes quick work of Jeremy Chardy on Saturday in Vina del Mar. Next up for Nadal is the final against Horacio Zeballos.

    Three matches into it and the rest of the Golden Swing dirtballers must getting awfully tired of Rafael Nadal.

    Nadal coasted once again on Saturday night at the VTR Open, seeing off Jeremy Chardy 6-2, 6-2 in one hour and four minutes. The Spaniard held all eight of his service games to book a place in the title match against Horacio Zeballos.

    If an in-form Chardy was expected to be Nadal's toughest of the week, that idea ended early and often. Nadal earned breaks in the first and third games, converting both chances on forehand errors by Chardy. Vina del Mar's No. 3 seed finally held twice, but Nadal closed the first set with a routine hold at 5-2.

    It was all but over when Chardy donated serve at 1-1 in the second, again due to a wayward forehand. The 26th-ranked Frenchman had a golden opportunity to get back on serve with a 0-40 advantage in the sixth game, but Nadal promptly won five straight points. An insurance break allowed the world No. 5 to serve for the match at 5-2, and he quickly capitalized on match point with his second ace.

    Nadal wrapped up his effort with five of five break points saved and he served at 80 percent. The 11-time Grand Slam champion, making an impressive return after seven months away from the game, pocketed four breaks despite seeing Chardy serve at 79 percent.
