Easy stuff for Rafael Nadal in Buenos Aires! The King of Clay dispatches Arguello in just 64 minutes 6-4 6-0.

The only awkward moment for Rafa was when he was broken back in the 4th game of the opener (2-all) to then find himself 2-3 down after Arguello held his service game soon after. From that moment on it was game over: Rafa 10 of the following 11 games to fly to the quarters against Delbonis. Match Stats.

Nadal: He was playing well at the beginning

Rafa commented “What happened is that in the first set, he played well, he played confidently, and I did not play very well. I was a little nervous about the match because of the match that I lost last week in Rio. As the match went on, I started to feel a little bit better. Winning the first set was vital, and from then, everything got better… I did things well in the second set.”
