Rafael Nadal throws down Novak Djokovic warning despite 'no solution' admission


Rafael Nadal scored his second win over Daniil Medvedev in under a month at the Abierto Mexicano Telcel. It was a much more straightforward affair compared to their Australian Open final as the Spaniard came through 6-3 6-3 and issued an injury update as he fired a warning to Novak Djokovic and his other rivals over his current form, which has seen him start his season with a 14-0 win-loss record.

Less than a month after Nadal and Medvedev met in an epic five-set thriller of an Australian Open final, their paths crossed again.

The world No 5 had the edge after mounting an incredible comeback from two sets down in Melbourne to become the first man in history to win a record 21st Grand Slam title.

This time he only needed two hours to overcome the soon-to-be world No 1 6-3 6-3 in the Mexico Open semi-final, and after the match he admitted he was happy to produce such a dominant display.

A single break in the fourth game of the opener proved crucial as the Spaniard raced to take the first set in 48 minutes.
