Rafael Nadal breezes into Indian Wells third round

Rafael Nadal opened his Indian Wells campaign on a successful note Sunday, blitzing Igor Sijsling 6-4, 6-2 in the second round of the WTA and ATP hardcourt tournament.

The 28-year-old Spaniard, who has won this event three times, advances to the next round where he will face American Donald Young.

The 14-time Grand Slam winner came into the California desert hardcourt tournament after winning the title in Buenos Aires.

Nadal, who is seeded third, broke Sijsling three times and only lost one point on his first serve (22 of 23) in the 62-minute center court match.
