Rafael Nadal has admitted that he was satisfied with his opening match of the clay court season earlier today.
Having had a two-week spell on the sidelines with a knee injury, Nadal confessed that his performance was "nothing special".
"I played a really normal match, nothing special. Nothing very bad, but nothing very good," he told reporters said Nadal. "[It was my] first match on clay after a long time without touching a racket."
Nadal will now face Mikhail Kukushkin for a place in round four.
