Italian Open: Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, scores, results, video


FORMER winners Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic powered into the third round of the Italian Open in Rome but Austrian Dominic Thiem fell at the first hurdle.

Sixth seed Thiem crashed out just a week after inflicting a first clay-court defeat on Nadal in over a year in Madrid which cost the Spaniard the world number one ranking.

The 24-year-old destroyed his racket in fury as he suffered his first defeat to Italian Fabio Fognini in three meetings, sinking 6-4, 1-6, 6-3 at the Foro Italico.
