  • Rafael Nadal Storms Into China Open Quarter-Final

Nadal is playing his first official event since winning his 16th major title at the U.S.

Goffin, chasing his second consecutive title after winning in Shenzhen last week, saw off Richard Gasquet 7-5 6-2 and Schwartzman was a 6-0 7-5 victor over Steve Johnson.

Handed a hard draw, the Spaniard was almost eliminated in the first round at the hands of Frenchman Lucas Pouille, saving two match points in a 4-6, 7-6 (6), 7-5 win.

He will now face Grigor Dimitrov, no. 3, who defeated Roberto Bautista Agut 7-6 (5), 4-6, 6-2.

The prior history between the two is heavily slanted in Nadal's direction. Ostapenko says Halep will be expected to win this time, but added: "If I play my best and I stay aggressive tomorrow and I am consistent, I think everything can happen". I was playing good at the beginning of the second and probably I had nearly match point with those two break points for 3-love.

Sharif, 30, is to make his first appearance Tuesday in provincial court on 11 charges, including five counts of attempted murder. One person suffered a fractured skull and was initially in critical condition, but had since been upgraded to stable.

Nadal has had an incredible season thus far, reaching three Major finals and extending his Grand Slam haul to 16, while Dimitrov reentered the top-10 with some consistent results which allowed him to reclaim his status of being a contender at the major tournaments. "I hope to be ready for it".

The eighth-seeded Australian rallied to beat Mischa Zverev 3-6, 6-2, 6-2, finding some degree of redemption for his ill-tempered, suspension-earning performance against the German past year in Shanghai.

Nadal took immediate control of the third set, racing to a 4-0 lead.

"He probably didn't play his best today, but I thought I really served well and didn't give him much rhythm", said Kyrgios, who is going after his fourth ATP title, but first this year. I've played Rafa quite a few times.

"There was just always something happening". "I am very pleased the way that I have been playing the whole week, after a very tough first day".
