Djokovic, Nadal sail through; Somdev falters in China Open

Djokovic signalled his intent to reclaim the title he won in the Chinese capital last year, sweeping aside Lukas Rosol 6-0, 6-3. The Serbian World No 1 — and top seed — defeated his Czech challenger in just 53 minutes.

Nadal, who could unseat Djokovic in the world rankings depending what happens in Beijing, faced slightly more resistance from Santiago Giraldo, with the Spaniard claiming a 6-2, 6-4 win. Meanwhile, Fernando Verdasco beat Somdev Devvarman 7-6 (8/6), 6-3.
