Nadal enters fourth round at US Open

New York, Sep 1 : Second-seed Rafael Nadal was still hot at the Flushing Meadows as the 2010 US Open champion needed just two hours to defeat Ivan Dodig from Croatia 6-4, 6-3, 6-3, keeping the "no set dropping" record to enter the fourth round here.

The 27-year-old missed the 2012 edition of the final major of the year because of a knee injury but he took home nine ATP titles in a year, the best among all male players, reports Xinhua.

The owner of 12 Grand Slam titles kept winning to claim titles both at Cincinnati and Montreal, entering the US Open with 10-0 record in hand, which now stands at 13-0.

Nadal will next meet the winner of the match between John Isner and Philipp Kohlschreiber in the next round.
