Nadal and Federer win in straight sets at Shanghai Masters

Roger Federer

The game and frivolity came as Federer was issued a bye in the first round, leaving him free to play his Disney opponents - complete with disco lighting and music.

The match started fairly brightly, with Donaldson able to seemingly settle into the encounter by matching Nadal and holding his opening two service games.

Obviously injured and in distress, Andy Murray chose not to abandon the match and that fact may have worsened that hip condition.

Federer next faces another potential banana skin in Ukrainian qualifier Alexandr Dolgopolov on Thursday.

Federer defeated Diego Schwartzman 7-6 (4), 6-4, winning the match with his 14th ace on his second match point. "He was confident. He was shaking off misses, no problems". Have been kept busy, as well, which gets me into the right mindset, to be quite honest, because I'm here for a reason, here for a purpose, trying to do well, hopefully winning the tournament. After a long argument with the chair umpire over an overruled line call, Schwartzman runs down a drop volley at 15-15 but fails to give it enough juice to get over the net for what would have been a certain winner.

'The goal at the beginning of the year wasn't the no. 1 spot, but being healthy.' Speaking furthermore about Nadal's great season, the 19-time Grand Slam champion added: 'It's nice to see him keeping going. "At (my) match point, I just had to make my first serve because I knew he would go for it if not".

"I'm playing mostly, you know, only the big tournaments now, so you need to be really tip-top shape and ready to go, and it's just not so simple", Federer said.

Also, U.S. Open finalist Kevin Anderson lost to Jan-Lennard Struff 7-6 (5), 7-6 (2), while Gilles Simon, Alexander Zverev, Sam Querrey and John Isner all advanced.
