Big-serving Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was sent crashing out of the Shanghai Masters yesterday by Japan's Kei Nishikori but untroubled top seed Rafael Nadal eased through to the third round.
Tsonga, the fourth seed, lost 7-6 (7/1), 4-6, 4-6. "I'm disappointed because I lost. But today I had a good opponent," said Tsonga.
Meanwhile, in his first match of the tournament after a first-round bye given to the top eight seeds, World No 2 Nadal, bidding for his 20th Masters title, beat fellow Spaniard Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 6-3, 6-2.
